THE CHESTNUT BURR 

Kent State University Kent, Ohio

KENT'S CAMPUS has a calm, 
placid look. It is considered by 
many to be the most beautiful 
campus in northeastern Ohio. KSU 
students hove a casual look about 
them, but beneath it there is on 
earnestness to better themselves, 
to look to the future. 



KENT FULFILLS AN OBLIGATION 



The 1958 Chestnut Burr does not purport to tell its 
readers the history of the University. A 50-year history, 
coupled with the Semicentennial Burr in 1960, will do 
that. 

The 1958 Burr will try to tell you what KSU is like 
right now, this school year, 1957-58. 

Instead, this book will try to analyze KSU. Kent is 
the second-largest state school in Ohio. As a state school, 
Kent has an obligation to the citizens of Ohio. 

It had been originally established as a teacher-training 
center. To this day a large number of graduates in the 
College of Education take their places in classrooms 



throughout the state to aid in developing Ohio's youth. 

As the school grew older, its curricula became broader 
in scope. Students with many ambitions came to study 
at Kent and then took their places in all forms of human 
endeavor. Their need for an unexpensive education was 
fulfilled. 

Construction and expansion are evident everywhere 
as KSU girds itself to prepare for its ever-increasing en- 
rollment, expected in 1970 to be more than 20,000. 

Extension centers are located throughout the state to 
provide college courses for those who do not have time 
to attend campus classes, either day or evening.

FRONT CAMPUS during the summer is cool and green, with many 
shade trees dotting it. Walks criss-cross the campus, providing 



short-cuts for the students to Rockwell library and the clossroom 
buildings. 




BETWEEN CLASSES, students gather to talk. Some are 
intent, some frivolous. 




AFTER DARK, the lights of Rockwell library are a beacon 
to those seeking a study place. 




College Life Varied 



Although the acquiring ol an education is the primary 
reason tor the existence of college life, it is by no means 
the only aspect of our four-year stay on campus. 

Activities of every conceivable type fill the student's 
life outside the classroom. Often they will enable him 
to seek a fuller expansion or practical application of the 
skills acquired academically. 

There are basically two types of activities— all-campus 
and those on an organizational level. All-University acti- 
vities are primarily social or cultmal. 

Those on an organizational level can be of several 
types— religious, social, professional, recreational. 

All are primarily designed to allow the individual to 
adapt to the concept of group living. 

But activities are not the only aspect of student life 
outside of the classroom. Inevitably, there must be study- 
ing. Often there is research to be done at the library. 
At times the reading of a text assignment is enough. 

A combination of study and activities is often 
achieved, with both equally emphasized. 




DURING SPRING, summer and early fall many students are bitten their rooms. Sometimes a lecture class moves outdoors. Warm 

by the nature bug and prefer studying on the grass rather than in weather brings out short sleeves. 







FATIGUE is often the result of long hours of study and re- 
search. Sleeo often follows. 



BOOKS ARE the tools of a student's trade. Campus bookstores 
are well stocked.

STUDENTS pass each other, some going to class, others for 
coffee, on an autumn day. 



Beauty Renowned 



IN SPRING, the hill in front of Merrill Hall is a pleasont 
spot to sit. 



The beauty of Kent's campus is well-known. Often 
sight-seers will drive from as far as Cleveland or Yoimgs- 
town just to admire it. 

This beauty has been a part of KSU since William 
Kent donated a piece of his land to the state. It was the 
original campus. 

On it was a large stand of chestnut trees. From them 
tlie annual gets its name. 





SNOW covers the campus in winter, mQi<ing the walk 
in front of Kent Hall ond the Atrium o picturesque 



place for o young couple to walk during a Saturday 
stroll. 




NIGHT RALLIES and bonfires sponsored by Golden K were 
a new look in school spirit. They were held the night be- 



fore each home football gome. A snoke dance down 
Main Street was the signal that the rally was starting. 



Outlets Available 



A necessary part of college life is outside activities. 
There are many of these outlets for interested students, 
covering a wide range. 

All-University affairs range from events like Home- 
coming and Campus Day to Rowboat Regatta. 

For sports fans, spacious Memorial Gym and Memorial 
Fieldhouse hold many thrilling moments. 





FORMAL DANCES give Kent students a break from their 
normal routine. 



REIGNING ROYALTY awards trophies at 
Homecoming, Campus Day dances. 




EACH SPRING, students flock to one of the lakes near Kent to the Ivy League crew races. Picnic clothes end sun-tan lotion 

to watch the rowing contests at Rowboat Regatta, KSU's answer are a necessity. 




ENTHUSIASM reaches a high pitch at University 
athletic contests.

some Kent students for careers in the field of industrial arts. skills in other areas. 




AFTER DARK, the corridors of classroom buildings often 
take on a somewhat lonely look. 



Campus At Night 



Night brings a new look to the Kent campus. Classes 
continue, but are offered to a different type student. 

Most of the night students work during the day. Many 
of them teach in the area and are ivorking on master's 
degrees. 

The average night school student— there are about 
1000 of them— is older than those foimd in day classes. 
There is a different atmosphere in night classes. 

And the campus itself looks different. Burr photo- 
graphers have recorded night views on these pages. 




FRANKLIN HALL is one of the centers of activity for night school. 
In it, night courses are offered in education, business administra- 



tion, philosophy and related courses. Many of them are graduate 
courses.

KSU Boasts Of Service, Progress 




As ;i state university, Kent has a double obligation— 
to its students and to the citizens of Ohio. 

It serves by being a cultural as well as an educational 
center. It is constantly expanding, preparing to meet the 
ever-increasing demands ot a larger enrollment. 

As part ol its tiinction oi service, the University is the 
home ol many workshops, clinics and conferences de- 
signed to keep people informed on the latest advances 
and improvements in supplies antl techniques in their 
fields. 

An outstanding example of this is the annual Short 
Course in Photo-Journalism each spring. 

Renowned photographers from throughout the na- 
tion come to Kent to disctiss the latest trends in their 
field. It was at the Short Cotirse several years ago that 
the electronic flash unit to permit better action photo- 
graphy and save flashbidbs %vas introduced. 

Workshops are sponsored for people in education and 
its specialized fields, for industrial and business trends, 
such as the truckers workshop and insurance workshop. 

University facilities are open to area residents. Clinics, 
such as speech and hearing, guidance testing, reading, 
and psychology are widely used by many people not at- 
tending KSU. 

Faculty members are available for consultation with 
individuals and industry concerning their specialties. 
The physics department is engaged in a research pioject 
with an Akron rubber company. 

Other faculty members are available for speeches to 
groups with specific interests or for social grou])s con- 
cerning their work or experiences. 



REGISTRATION is one of the few times most of us hove 
had contact with the offices in the Atrium. But they 
continue serving the student body throughout the year 
when the need arises. 



TALKS by faculty members before area groups kept 
them informed about KSU. 





A SENSE of competition is instilled through such events as the 
Songfest on front campus. 



Students Mature 



Four years of college make subtle changes— and some- 
times not so subtle changes— in a person. 

The people we meet and friends we make, the places 
we go, the things we do and how we do them, all are 
different than when we started college. 

The full effect of four years shows itself on the 
graduating seniors. His college training completed, he 
looks to the future. 




NEW FRIENDS are made throughout the college career from 
the time we enter as freshmen. 



A GRADUATING SENIOR, books set aside, gazes through a Mer- for him. Four years of college life have prepared him for life. The

Placement Bureau 



The University maintains a Bureau of Appoint- 
ments lor placement of its students and graduates. Dr. 
Paul K. Howells last year replaced retired Dr. Lester H. 
Mimzenmayer as Bureau head. 

Situated in the balcony of the Administration Build- 
ing, the Bureau not only places students at graduation, 
but also carries many folders from places that employ 
sttidents during the summer months. 

Because the cooperation of the students, faculty and 
employers has been so great, the Bureau is now able to 
place the student while he is in school, at graduation 
and in later years. 

The student is urged to contact the office, where he 
is helped to find the right job. 

When a student applies to the Bureau, he is given a 
folder to fill out on information about himself. This in- 
cludes an aiuobiography, a list of courses taken while at- 
tending the University, a picture and other miscellan- 
eous information. The material is demanded by future 
employers. 

The Biueau of Appointments has placed students in 
many different jobs, including teaching, selling and 
other employment. The Bureau, after being contacted 
by the student, arranges interviews between the employer 
and the prospective employee. 




RUDY LIBERTINI received information about placement from 
Mrs. Darlene Tice in tine Bureau of Appointments. 



A PROMINENT graduate of Kent State University is Robert Cook, 
prosecuting attorney for Portage County. In the courtroom, where he 



spends much of his time, Cook uses the fine training gained at

Clicks of typewriters and business machines, smells 
from cooking and chemicals and sights of busy students 
are all familiar at Kent State University. 

Classroom buildings are equipped to handle each 
aspect of study offered at the University. Additional 
information is gained through student teaching, intern- 
ships and field trips. 

Increased enrollment has developed new problems at 
Kent State. By enlarging buildings and by transforming 
other structures, the University has been able to meet 
the growing demands. 

Students have access to 130,000 volumes and more 
tiian 800 current periodicals at Rockwell Library. The 
Library is being enlarged to facilitate additional books 
and more students. Construction is scheduled to be 
completed by fall quarter of 1958. 

More classes and clinics will be a\ailable in the pro- 
posed three-and-a-half million dollar speech and music 
building. The structiue has been approved by state of- 
ficials, and construction is to begin next fall. 

By providing facilities, the University is helping the 
students develop skills and acquire knowledge which Avill 
be needed in their futme careers. 

One himdred and eighty acres have been piuchased 
since 1948 to meet the need for classrooms and buildings. 
Expansion seems to be the keynote at KSLT.

Kent Offers Variety 



STUDENTS EXAMINE rock specimens for a geology class 
which was held in a laboratory in McGilvery Hall. 



Studies at KSU include nearly every field from art to 
zoology. McGilvery, Merrill, Franklin, Kent and Van 
Deusen Halls and the Memorial Fieldhouse contain lab- 
oratories and offices. 

Franklin Hall joined the list of classroom buildings 
in 1956 as the Lincoln .St. Building. It was formerly the 
University Training School. 

A modern University Training School was built near 
the Stadium on East Summit St. Through its facilities, 
education majors have an opportunity to teach ele- 
mentary and high school pupils. Student teachers also 
work in area schools. 

The Bertha L. Nixson Home Management House, 
Music Practice House, Military Science Building, North, 
South and W'est Halls contain other facilities for classes 
and laboratories. 

Students may apph their newly gained knowledge in 
the laboratories and in off-campus situations, as well. 
The internship program and field trips enable students 
to learn more about their chosen profession. 

Field trips are usually taken to industries and other 
places in the area. Internships give the students actual 
working experience. The program aids the intertiees in 
getting employment in the future. 

By interdependency with the community, the Univer- 
sity provides an opportunity for concentrated study. The 
classrooms are important beginnings where KSU stu- 
dents gain a basic understanding of their field.

Students Enjoy Life 



Looking for a place to enjoy yourself? Some find 
satisfaction in the record library. Perhaps your interests 
are more on the social side. For you there is the Union 
lounge, bowling alley, Hub and, of course, the girls' 
dorms. Here we find a great majority of our students 
saying goodnight; each in his own way.

THOUGH STUDYING in the library requires deep thought, it 
seems likely that the heads were not bowed in meditation. 



Some of the students believe in taking a short nap before tack- 
ling research for a term paper. 



Variety Is Keynote 



Wonder where your fellow students study? Some 
make use of the available space in their own rooms and 
dormitory lounges. For persons interested in getting 
away from roommates, various libraries are located about 
the campus. Others insist the Hub is the only place for 
them to study. In the spring, the call of the wild takes 
its toll as students take to the broad green carpet that 
surrounds these ivy halls of study.

As Uic stiidciits ol Kent State progress 
through a year ol classes, study and work, the 
lirst excitement ol being back in school dims 
until it is non-existent. To relieve the monotony 
ol studies, the glitter of dances and other activi- 
ties highlight the evenings. 

The activities at Kent are the residt ol artistry, 
clever ideas, planning and teamwork. 

Plans for the next year's activities begin as 
soon as the ciurent one is past. Homecoming, 
Campus Day, Pork Barrel, Rowboat Regatta, 
University Theater plays. Top Hop and May 
Day Relays require weeks and months of plan- 
ning, both by individual organizations and the 
social committee. These activities do not just 
hap])en. Instead, the ideas must be born and 
nintured until the final production is staged. 

The varied program of activities at Kent pro- 
vides needed outlet.

LIVING UP to its nome, the Hub serves as the center of the stu- 
dent's recreational life. "Hubsitting" is a favorite pastime at 



Kent State. With the juke box playing in the background, 
students talk, eat and read. 




STRIKE OR SPARE? Bowling were, l.-r., Frank Rudibaugh, 
Chuck Hoffner and Tom Sisson. 



Lively Atmosphere 



It's a rare KSU student who goes tlirough four years 
of campus life without coming in contact at least once 
with the Kent Stale Union, as it's officially known, or its 
offspring, the Hub. 

Technically speaking, the Union fulfills all the stu- 
dents' needs— from hunger through social life. 

The Hub provides a place to get a quick snack, make 
new friends or pass time with old ones. Sometimes you'll 
even find a hardy soul studying, although it seems hard 
between the controversial minals and the noise from the 
juke box. 

The lounge is (he li\ing room of the Lhiiversity and 
a handy meeting place. The Portage Room is the scene 
of dances and banquets. 

Downstairs, students can bowl, shoot billiards or find 
a fomth for bridge in the card room. The KSU book- 
store is also located here. 

Meeting rooms for any tampus organizations, and 
such campus go\erning bodies as Student Coimcil, IFC 
and Pan-Hellenic Coimcil are upstairs. Members of many 
of the organizations have stood barefoot on Union chairs 
while having Burr pictin-es taken. 

The faculty dining room is located on the second 
floor of the Union. Coupled with the Union Cafeteria 
and Hub, it is a part of the L'nion's food service.

New Student Week 



Adjusting members of the freshman class to college 
life is important to persons affiliated with Kent State 
University. New Student Week program was introduced 
for this purpose. In this brief duration of time, the 
frosh become acquainted with the campus, with their 
classmates and with the faculty. 

Upperclassmen voliuiteered to act as leaders for this 
week, and they aided their charges in registering for the 
first time. 

Extracurricular activities, held each night, provided 
the new students with an opportunity to see the "other 
side of college life." 

A sing session introduced the more lamiliar of the 
Kent State songs. 

President and Mrs. George A. Bowman honored the 
freshman class with a reception at their home. After the 
reception, the students went to Memorial Gymnasium 
where they met the faculty at the annual "Meet the Fac- 
ulty Night." Asking questions of the professors enabled 
the students to associate a few names with faces. 

The KSU Prevue highlighted some of the oiUstand- 
ing individuals and groups from a few of the last year's 
activities. Winning Pork Barrel skits and Campus Day 
songfest entrants were presented. 

The traditional gold antl Ijluc "dinks' ^vere worn

Homecoming, 1957 



Homecoming 1957 arrived at KSU on a cold weekend 
in October. The first snowfall of the season covered 
Kent as visitors swarmed to the campus. 

Decorations were wrapped with plastic to keep them 
from being ruined before the judging. Some groups did 
not erect their decorations until the early hours of Sat- 
urday morning. 

Journalism honoraries served at a coffee hour for 
returning alumni during the morning. A presentation 
was made to Mrs. Helen Westcott Dix, a 1938 graduate, 
as the outstanding journalism alum at the luncheon. 

Fraternities, sororities and dormitories held open 
house for the alums and friends. 

The Kent State Flashes were defeated by the Bowling 
Green Falcons, 13-7. Queen Kathleen Bamberger and 
her court were presented to the partisan crowd of 10,000

The music of Duke Ellington's orchestra highlighted 
the dance at Memorial Gymnasium. Members of the 
orchestra, all noted soloists, added the touch needed to 
make this a memorable Homecoming. 




LUCKY DELTA Upsilon fraternity men were aided with 
Homecoming preparations by their girls.

Busy Fall Season 



Homecoming is the busiest time in a crowded fall 
calendar. For weeks beforehand, dorms and Greek and 
independent organizations make extensive plans for 
house displays, open houses and banquets. 

Starting the day before the game, thousands of alumni 
begin to pour into Kent for the weekend of festivities. 
The Union and the houses serve as focal points for the 
weekend, with the KSU Alumni Association sponsoring 
registration in the Union Loiuige. 

One of the highlights for retiuning journalism 
alumni is the annual tea and hmcheon sponsored by the 
j-school. ft is imique ainong the KSU departments. 

Highlighting the afternoon is the football game. 
Bowling Green, KSU's sister school, shares a long-time 
tradition with Kent. When the BG-KSU game is there, 
it is Bowling Green's Homecoming. When the game is 
played at Kent, it is KSU's Homecoming. 

Memorial Fieldhouse is filled for the final event, the 
dance at which the winning house decorations are an- 
nounced. The name band that plays will draw not only 
students and alumni, but guests from near-by cities as 
well. Social Committee, under-writing the event M'ith 
student fee funds, sponsors the day. 




A THRONG OF more than 7,000 crowded into Memorial Field- 
house to dance to the Homecoming orchestra of Duke Ellington.

lington, called "America's foremost jazz composer.

At Christmas, KSU Takes A Break 



The Christmas season has a variety of meanings to 
KSU students. To many it is a religious feast. It sym- 
bolizes the birth of the founder of Christianity. 

To all, it marks a milestone in the school year— the 
end of fall quarter. The season is a busy time of year. 
There are finals, projects due, and presents to be bought 
for the family. 

The vacation period is one in which many Kent 
students find temporary employment. Some work in de- 
partment stores. Others sort and deliver mail. 

There are many parties to attend and friends to visit. 
But while the campus is devoid of students, work goes 
on as usual at the University. 

The offices of the registrar and treasurer are busy 
preparing for winter registration. 

Personnel in the departments have a two-fold job. 
Final examinations must be checked and grades mailed. 
Preparation must be made for the next quarter. 

Christmas tradition abounds at KSU. The freshman 
class annually decorates front campus for the event. A 
tree-lighting ceremony is held. 

Each day at noon and early in the afternoon, cam- 
pus organizations carol in the Union and Rockwell 
library. Students are invited to join in the singing. 




PRESIDENT GEORGE A. Bowman welcomed the crowd to the 
tree lighting ceremony on front campus. 



BLESSING THE CRIB at the Christmas service was the Rev. Fr. 
John Daum. In the background were President Bowman, Student 



Council Pres. Stuart Myers, Freshman Class President David Wright 
and Stan Permowicz, President of the Newman Club.

EXPLAINING THE Eastern Orthodox Liturgy Janet Kobiek, Diane 
Garick and Dorothy Winovich was the Rev. Leon Pachis. The 



Roman Catholic Mass and the Jewish Religious Service were also 
demonstroted during the Conference. 



COR Helps Students Evaluate Life 



A new dimension was added to campus life during 
winter quarter. It was in the form of a Conference on 
Religion which replaced Religious Emphasis Week. 

COR, under the sponsorship of the University Chris- 
tian Mission of the National Council of Churches, had 
five basic aims. They were: to confront the University 
as a whole with the resources and demands of religious 
faith; to seek the larger meaning of religion in every 
phase of life in the commimity; to recognize the im- 
portance of religion as the basis of integrity throughout 
every area of life: to provide for each person a more in- 
telligent basis for his own religious commitment and to 
stimulate a framework of thinking and living in the com- 
munity which will allow each person greater freedom to 
appreciate and deepen his religious experience. 

Cooperating in the promotion of COR were the Uni- 
versity Religious Council, B'nai B'rith through the Hillel 
Advisory Council and Je^vish Chautaugua Society and 
the Roman Catholic Church of the Diocese of Youngs- 
town. 

Included in the week were lectures, seminars, class 
visits by the speakers and demonstrations and explana- 
tions of the Eastern Orthodox Litiugy, the Roman Cath- 
olic Mass and the Je^vish Religious Service. 



DURING THE Conference, Charles King conducted singing in 
the Hub at noons.

Top Hop Was Tops 



On February 7, Karlyn Vaughan and Stuart Myers 
were crowned as Miss Kent State and Duke of Kent at 
Top Hop, an annual winter quarter dance. A crowd of 
2,250 danced to the music of Les Brown's band, playing 
from a bandstand built over Memorial Gym's pool de- 
signed to give more dancing room. 

David Rausch, Social Committee Chairman, presented 
the honored couple to the crowd at intermission, pre- 
ceding the awarding of crowns and trophies by Kathy 
Lang, secretary of Student Council. Joseph Terpak, a 
member of the Social Committee, served as chairman of 
the all-University function. 

The Top Hop musicians, Les Brown and his Band 
of Renown, were named the top band for the fourth 
straight year by "Downbeat's" reader poll. (Ratings for 
the group include National Ballroom Association's num- 
ber one classification and "Metronome" magazine's opin- 
ion that the musicians form the "dance band of the 
year.") Stumpy Brown, the bandleader's brother who 
sings and plays trombone, and Butch Stone, comedian 
and musician, added variety to the repertoire. 

Decorating Memorial Gym for the dance was Alpha 
Psi Omega, theater honorary. The concession stands were 
run by Cardinal Key and Golden K.

WINNING FIRST place in the fraternity division of the annual 
Pork Barrel production was the Theta Chi's skit entitled "Stranger 



In Paradise." Dave Jecman was the "Stranger" who contrived to 
get himself carried into a harem. 



Theta Chi Cops First In Pork Barrel 




KAREN SWANK, singing "The Man I Love," was one of 
the in-between acts of Pork Barrel. 



Trying something new this year, the Pork Barrel 
Committee selected "Songtitles" as the theme for the 
skits in the 28th annual Pork Barrel. The songtitle could 
be used in the title of the skit, background music, or it 
could be worked into the action. 

Composed chiefly of fraternity and dormitory skits, 
Pork Barrel was presented February 14 in the University 
Auditoriiun. 

Pork Barrel offered several opportunities for talented 
individuals to appear publicly. The in-between acts this 
year brought many new campus personalities, besides 
already well-known acts, before the audience. 

Because of a short winter quarter, many groups felt 
that it was necessary to withdraw from this year's produc- 
tion for academic reasons. Alpha Phi was the only soror- 
ity to enter this year. Although the organizations had 
a smaller amount of time to work, there was no decrease 
in the quality of the skits. 

Evolving from annual amateur shoM's ^vhich were 
put on by individuals between 1921 and 1930, the origi- 
nal piupose of the production was to provide an oppor- 
tunity for talented students to perform. 

In the beginning it was not uncommon to have a 
simimer performance. The groups were organized as to 
their home comities and competed against one another.

1958-A Newsworthy Year At KSU 



NANCY OLDHAM brought fame to KSU when she went to 
see her brother Ned lead the Navy team ogoinst Rice. 




News— a report of a recent event is the definition that 
some journalism textbooks give lo this little word that 
means so much in everyday life. 

Each year many events occur on the Kent State cam- 
pus or on any campus, for that matter, that never get 
recorded in the yearbook. This year is no exception. 
Most students will have memories of events that hap- 
pened around KSU that did not appear in the Burr. 

Some of the events are ones to be happily remembered 
while still others would best be forgotten. 

Since the last yearbook was published, many changes 
have been made at Kent State. Two faculty members 
have died during the last year. Prof. Roy Metcalf, direc- 
tor of the KSU Twin Marching Bands, died on July 4, 
1957. Professor Metcalf had originated the idea of the 
Twin Bands in 1926 and had made the band one of the 
best in the nation. During fall quarter Dr. John Popa, 
professor of history at Kent since 1946, died. 

Surface changes have also occmred on KSU's 320 
acres. Construction around the campus is a never-ceasing 
activity. Soon the library addition will be finished. Plans 
for new buildings have been approved. 

Personalities make appearances at the University. All 
of this is news that will be remembered for years to come. 
What will the future hold? News will tell. 



PRESIDENT GEORGE A. Bowman received the charter for the Kent 
State chapter of Phi Eta Sigma, notional freshman scholastic hon- 



orary, from James E. Foy. Foy serves as the secretary for the 
national organization.

Happenings on the Kent State University campus 
during the year ranged from athletic activities to aca- 
demic and cultural events. 

A new honorary was added when a chapter of Phi Eta 
Sigma was organized. In sports, the wrestling team ac- 
cumulated 200 wins and Andy Bajcsa competed in the 
National Indoor Track and Field Championship. 

The Cleveland Symphony drew capacity crowds in a 
spring concert.

THREE GAMMA Phi Betas, l.-r., Sally Pierce, Carol Hall and Bea 
Roth modeled a few of the leis which they helped to sell at the 



annual Penny Carnival. The Hawaiian theme won first place for 
Gamma Phi in the sorority division. 



Penny Carnival, '57 



^Vith Penny Carnival booths, barkers and crowds, 
Wills Gymnasium assumed a festive atmosphere on 
Apr. 27. Delta Upsilon, Gamma Phi Beta and Moulton 
Hall won trophies for gaining the greatest profit from 
their booths. 

Carnival contestants were entered in three divisions, 
including fraternity, sorority, and independent. 

Moulton Hall, winner in the independent division, 
challenged the attendants to throw ping pong balls in 
the mouths of two dragons. 

A "Chamber of Horrors," including within its walls a 
body in a coffin, gained first place in the fraternity di- 
vision for Delta Upsilon. 

No carnival is complete without leis to be worn 
around the neck, and Gamma Phi Beta earned the num- 
ber one position in the sorority division by selling these 
paper adornments. 

Cardinal Key and Blue Key, the two national service 
honoraries, sponsored the event for scholarship funds 
and the Penny Stater fund. The scholarships are pre- 
sented to one boy and one girl graduating from high 
school. The Penny Stater fund provides finances for the 
campus newspaper which is sent to the servicemen. 

Penny Carnival began in 1942 under the auspices of 
the War Activity Council. The event was organized then 
to raise money for the Penny Stater finrd. 




ED URSCHLER served Bob Battisti's head a 
Penny Carnival in the Chamber of Horrors.

THRONGS OF students jammed the front yard of the Sigma Phi 
Epsilon house for the annual May Day Relays. Sponsored by the 



Sig Eps and Gamma Phi Betas, the relays proved to be "real tests 
of strength" for all who entered. 



Phi Delts, Engleman Score In Relays 



HELEN MOISE and Mary Ann Allen skillfully "passed the 
matchbox" as they attempted a victory for the Phis. 




The annual May Day Relays, co-sponsored by Sigma 
Phi Epsilon and Gamma Phi Beta, were held on the 
large front lawn at the Sig Ep house. 

Groups began to gather before the scheduled time. 
Many cheered their favorites, and others were the lucky 
ones chosen to represent their respective fraternities, sor- 
orities, and independent groups. 

Dressed in their oldest clothes, the competitors were 
ready to participate in such events as the pie-eating con- 
test, chugging cokes from b(ntles with nipples attached, 
passing a matchbox ^vith the nose, tossing eggs, and 
liiree-leggcd races. These were just a few of the 11 con- 
tests that were open to the entrants. 

Winning first place honors in the men's division, 
which included both Greeks and independents, was Phi 
Delta Theta. The men of Kappa Sigma placed second, 
and t\vo groups. Varsity K and Sigma \u. tied for third 
place. 

Engleman Hall topped the women's division, follow- 
ed by the women of Delta Gamma and .\lpha Phi, sec- 
ond and third, respectively. 

Started in 1956 as an all-Greek event, the first Relays 
were held on the library lawn. They were moved off- 
campus to the Sig Ep house because of the construction 
tor the library addition and the parking lot. 





HOPEFUL OF winning, the girls of Verder passed a water- 
filled balloon at the Relays. 



LYING WITH eyes closed in concentrated effort was Phi 
Sigma Kappa's coke chugger, Roy Harold.

Campus Day, 1957 



Cloudy weather failed to extinguish the enthusiasm 
at Kent State as the 44th annual Campus Day arrived. 

Morning activities started with the traditional paint- 
ing of the "K" by the Delta Upsilon K-Girl. The honor 
for 1957 went to Miss Lillian Pollack, a member of Alpha 
Chi Omega. Lillian was pinmate of Dan Patridge. Mrs. 
Bruce Silcher, wife of the head of the University's Air 
Force ROTC detachment, was honorary K-Girl. 

The K ceremony originated in 1923 when Kappa 
Mu Kappa fraternity, the local which preceded Delta 
Upsilon, dedicated a large K to the University with the 
hope that others would add a letter each year until "Kent 
State" was written across the campus. 

University officials decided to nrake the K ceremony 
a tradition with Kappa Mu Kappa giving it a fresh coat 
of paint each year. The painting of the K was delegated 
to the fraternity sweetheart in 1948. 

On Campus Day, the carillon bells made their initial 
appearance. The "John A. Florek Memorial Bells" were 
a gift to the University from the classes of 1957, '58, '59, 
'60 and John A. Florek. Florek was a KSU alumnus 
killed in the Korean conflict. He left his insurance 
money to the University to be used for the school's 
betterment. 

As crowds of students, parents, alumni and towns- 
people gathered on the front campus. Queen Joan Lind- 
say was crowned by Zane Saunders, president of Student 
Council. She and her court watched as the traditional 
Maypole Dance was performed.

subjects from a convertible rather than a royal coach.

REGATTA QUEEN Donna Wirth happily accepted her trophy 
from emcee, Lou Holtz. 



Rowboat Regatta 



As cries of "Gotta Go Regatta" faded, it was appar- 
ent that the day was a great one for the ATO's. 

The ATO's captured three firsts, winning the fra- 
ternity boat race, the pre-Regatta soapbox derby and 
the tug-of-war. Delta Gamma won the sorority boat 
race while Terrace Hall and Newman Club paced the 
independent women and men, respectively.

STARS OF NTFC, Jess Wiseman, Audrey Mclntire, Shirley Kollos 
and Manuel Paradeses joined the chorus in the wedding scene 



from "Guys and Dolls." With final dress rehearsals scheduled for 
the next night, last-minute changes were made. 



NTFC Scores Hit With "Guys and Dolis" 



"No Time for Classes," the all-student show sponsored 
by Student Council, borrowed from Broadway its presenta- 
tion of "Guys and Dolls." The show, written for the stage 
by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling, and with Frank Loesser's 
words and music, is an adaptation of Damon Runyan stories 
depicting his beloved New York and its strange cast of 
characters. 

"Guys and Dolls" concerns gambler Sky Masterson, 
played by Jess Wiseman, and his escapades, especially his 
romance with Sarah Brown, a Salvation Army lass, played 
by Audrey Mclntire. A second story involves Nathan De- 
troit, owner of New York's "oldest established permanent 
floating crap game." and night club ciuie, Adelaide. Man- 
uel Paradeses appeared as Nathan, and Shirley KoUas, as 
Adelaide, again wowed audiences as she did two years ago 
in "Wonderful Town." 

NTFC was produced by l^ichard Oborne and ciirected 
by Nancy Wynn. Dave Jecmen and Joan Butterfield did 
the choreography for this lively show. Other standouts in

first amaieur production of "Wonderful Town." 




PRODUCTION STAFF, Richard Oborne, Nancy Wynn, Bob Wil- 
liams ond Dave Jecmen, appraised the show.

and students. Robed seniors paraded to the podium lo 
receive the reward for their efforts — a degree. 

The time spent in receiving the diploma was short in 
comparison to the years spent earning it. A handshake, 
congratidations, diploma, and it was over. 

A realization remained that Kent State University 
had ]3repare(l each graduate for a better life by imparting 
knowledge. 




FOUR YEARS OF studies, fun and extracurricular activities 
ended when the Class of 1957 received diplomas.

ment, and Dr. Benjamin Mehlman of the psychology department portation after class. 




Summer Activities 



Summer meant vacation time to most KSU students 
but not to those on campus. Regular activities contin- 
ued on a small scale as students enrolled in one or both 
of the summer sessions. 

Vacationing students were not forgotten since plans 
were made for the freshmen and returning upperclass- 
men. Summer, as the other seasons, is dedicated to pro- 
ducing educated men and women. Both siunmer sessions 
are equivalent to one quarter. 




COMBINING WORK with pleasure, a nun sot in the sun 
and studied during one afternoon in the summer. 



IN "LO AND BEHOLD" were cast, l.-r., J. Horner, Q. Beutler, N. L.

Here's How Maureen Became Queen 




SNAPPING PICTURES of Maureen Reeves, Burr Queen, were 
Jerry Woodruff and Ed Glassner. 



One of the most pleasant yet harassing jobs at KSU is 
choosing one of the University's many queens. 

Candidates appear in everything from shorts and tee- 
sliirts to cocktail dresses, depending on the queenship. 
The room where the judging is held is crowded. 

Some coeds sit tensely, others do homework until their 
number or name is called, and it is time to do their stroll 
in front of the judges. 

Then, for the candidate, there is a moment of strain 
as she walks before the judges. For the judges, it is just 
another good-looking coed to be coldly and impersonally 
analyzed. 

Does she have poise? What about her grades? Is she 
well-groomed? What about her face and figure? The 
girl sits down. The judges pause and consider their 
scores. A total is made of the score. 

More waiting before the semi-finalists are selected. 
Elation for some, depression for others. 

More tension. Then only a few remain, the finalists. 
One of them is a queen. But which one? Some queens 
are announced right away, but not the Burr Queen. 

It took four months of waiting for Maineen Reeves 
to find that she was Chestnut Burr Queen. 
It was a long wait, but worth it. 




BURR QUEEN Judges Ken Mlltner, Robert Swarfout, Idabelle 
Hoose, Edward Cliney, Ralph Kingzett and Scorer Ed Glassner noted 



the beauty and poise of Queen Maureen Reeves, 
selected from a group of more than 100 women.

The 1958 Chestnut Burr Staff Salutes 



At the request ol the 1958 Burr staff. Dean of Men 
Glen T. Nygreen and Dean of Women Margaret Davis 
have selected eight seniors as the outstanding members 
of their class. 

It is not easy to state the qualifications needed in 
order to be classified as outstanding. For foin^ years the 
students have contributed time, talents and efforts to 
the University. Realizing that they owe as much of an 
obligation to the University as the University owes to 
them, the outstanding seniors ha\e worked for the bet- 
terment of KSU. Belonging to a Greek organi/ation is 
not a "must" to qualify as "outstanding." 



This year three independents ha\e been selected 
as contributing outstanding qualities to KSU. 

With skills ranging from athletic to scholastic, the 
students have still foimd the lime to donate service to 
the school. 

Extra-curricidar activities reach a maximimi rather 
than a minimum for these students who can still excel 
academically. Listing honoraries among their achieve- 
ments, these students have been the leaders of \arious 
organizations. 

To these, the Outstanding Seniors of 1958, the Chest- 
nut Burr gives its salute. 




From Voungslown, Sorrel Logolhetis is majoring in 
comprehensive social studies. A member of Delta Up- 
silon. Sorrel serves as vice president of Phi Alpha Theta, 
president of IFC, a member of the Greek Week Commit- 
tee and IFC representative to the national conference for 
two years. A three-year letterman on the tennis team, he 
also belongs to Varsity K, Eastern Orthodox Fellowship, 
Blue Key and SEA. 



An education major from Akron, Nancy Lee was 
last year's outstanding junior woman. She was president 
of Alpha Chi Omega and Association of Women Stu- 
dents, vice president of Cardinal Key and secretary of 
her jimior and senior classes. Nancy edited the Kent 
Coed and was sorority editor of the 1957 Burr. She was

Although the organizations at Kent State Uni- 
versity differ in size, purpose and activities, the 
groups have one basic aim— to allow persons with 
a common objective to unite. 

Besides giving the student an o]jportiniity to 
learn, organizations aid him in gaining a well- 
rounded personality. Membership in the campus 
groups may help the student to develop leader- 
ship and other qualities which will benefit him 
after graduation. 

Activities recei\e a boost from the organiza- 
tions on campus. Participation is not the only 
contribution made by the groups. The organ- 
izations sponsor such activities as Pork Barrel 
and Penny Carnival. 

Awards highlight the year for the organiza- 
tions. The outstanding members are honored 
with trophies and medals. Scholarships and 
financial aid are given to deserving students in 
certain fields.

2-Court System Serves Kent Students 



Kent State University's judicial power is vested in 
High Coiut. Three students appointed by Student 
Council and two i'acuhy members appointed by Pres. 
George A. Bowman are members of tlie Court which 
tries cases involving the student government. 

The Court also handles other disputes. If the students 
in different classes argue, the case is referred to High 
Court. It settles controversies among the organizations 
on campus. 

All impeachments are handled by the Court unless 
they extend to a student member of the court. With good 
behavior the students hold their position on the Court 
until they graduate. 
The chief justice is designated by Council from among 
the student members. 

Another prominent organization in the KSU student 
government is the l^raffic Court. This organization 
passes judgment on all student traffic offenders who are 
brought to its attention by the University Police. 

The three Traffic Court justices are selected by the 
Student Council. An exception to this occurs in the sum- 
mer when the University Comptroller makes the ap- 
pointments. Term of office is for three consecutive 
school sessions or two summer sessions. The coiu't record- 
er is a representative of the University Police.

dent of Student Council following the resignation of Zane 
Saunders. Myers had been Vice President. 

In the winter quarter election, the students approved 
an amendment to change the eligibility clause for the 
president. The clause had stated that to be president a 
student must have served for one year on Council. The 
amendment made the clause read "two quarters." 

A second amendment was approved stating that the 
vice president automatically could assume the office, 
duties and responsibilities of the president in the case 
that Coimcil would find itself without one. Until this 
time, a special election was held to fill the vacancy when 
Council was without one.

M. S. A. Guides 



Men's Student Association is one organization on cam- 
pus to which all men registering at Kent State University 
belong regardless of the field and college which they 
enter. 

Men's Student Association is composed of representa- 
tive members and is ruled by a popidarly-elected execu- 
tive committee from each class. Officers are chosen by 
the male body of the school in the spring quarter elec- 
tions. Their election is based on the four basic jjrinciples 
of the organization— leadership, character, scholarship 
and service. 

The purpose of M.S. A. is to help men students by 
providing a functional social service. 

Every winter quarter the Association co-sponsors Pork 
Barrel with the Association of Women Students. Pork. 
Barrel features short skits by campus organizations, and 
it is a highlight of the scholastic year. As a new proce- 
dure, this year's show had a theme, a plan not tried 
previously.

spirit of the University. 

The group has an electi\e official known as a hostess

Golden K initiated an inno\ation this year. The 
\\'orking K"s are the pledges of the organization who 
must prove their willingness to work for the betterment 
of the University. The pledges make signs to advertise 
coming athletic events and to encourage school spirit. 

By selling dinks to freshmen and mimis for Homecom- 
ing, the group makes enough money to care for the KSU 
mascot, Golden Flasher II. Representatives of 1 1 campus 
organizations compose the Golden K's.

Madison Square Garden. 

An annual banquet is held in January to honor the 
new Golden K members.

Varsity Lettermen 



The Varsity K CUiib was createil to promote stiulent 
participation in physical education and to form a com- 
mon bond among varsity athletes. 

Maintaining ties between the athletic department 
and the alinnni is another of the club's aims. Varsity 
K stresses cooperation, gooti sportsmanship anil high 
scholarship. 

Organized by Merle Wagoner, athletic director in 
1927, the club's original functions were having dances 
and organizing the first University Homecoming. 

Defunct during World War II, it was reorganized in 
1946 by Trevor Rees. 

An athlete who earns a varsity letter automatically 
becomes a member of the club. Broken bones and bruises 
are not a prerequisite but most Kent athletes seem to 
acquire them at one time or another. 

The Varsity K sponsored a dame this year for which 
a queen was chosen. Queen Mickey Miller was attended 
by Mary Allen and Pat Jaffrin. 

The group has seven honorary members. Among the 
honorary group are two women, Mrs. Doris Kot, a secre- 
tary in the athletic office, and Dr. Elizabeth A. Leggett, 
a former University physician.

The basic aim of the Institute is to "facilitate by all 
available means the interchange of technical ideas among 
aeronautical engineers throughotit the world." Students 
are affiliates of the professional group. 



The desire to fly motixates KSU stutlents to join the 
Flying Club. Chartered by the state, the grotip was one 
of the first of its kind to be established. 

Planes and some instruction are supplied by the club 
at a minimum cost. The latest information abotit avia-

Music, Theatre 

Talent presents itself in a professional manner in the 
dramatic, forensic and musical lields. 

Here are cases where liiiman resources are readily 
available and neeil only be recognized and mc^lded to be- 
come more nearly perfect. 

Students are given many opportimities to lUili/.e their 
ability. Often the judges antl tlie audience are unaware 
of the long hours and hard work that have preceded the 
presentation. 

Not only do the indi\idual participants benefit, but 
the University and commimity derive much pleasine and 
enjoyment from observing (he perlormers in their partic- 
ular roles. 

This part ol the University strives for recognition in 
the line ol quality and not cpianiity. 

Every quarter is a busy one for the students engaged 
in these activities. Theirs is a situation which necessi- 
tates effort being put forth until a satisfactory goal is 
attained. Reward comes wih the realization that a good 
performance has been achieved.

Kent State's Band 



The Kent Stale University Band assumed a new look 
this year under the direction of Edward Masters. The 
famed Twin Marching unit was converted into a single 
band during fall quarter. 

Professor Masters succeeded Prof. Roy D. ^[etcall 
who died on July 1. In 1929, Professor Metcall organ- 
ized KSU's first student hand. The former diredor de- 
veloped the gold and liiiic Twin Marcliing Bands foi 
which the University was noted. 

The ])resent band is placing ils emphasis on sounti. 
The nimiber of majorettes has been reduced. Rather 
than being led by the majorettes, the marching unit is 
headed by a drum major. 

Concentrating on gootl music, the Uni\ersity Band 
spends much time in practice. The group perfoinis ap- 
proximately 15 minutes during half-time ceremonies al 
ball games, but rehearsal is several times that figure. 

The concert band is beginning to assimie a prominent 
position under Professor Masters. At a concert during 
winter quarter, the band presented a program that the 
area high schools will use in spring competition. 

Any student who plays a band instrument may enroll 
in the band for one hour of credit. Members are selected 
on the basis of interviews, auditions, previous records and 
recommendations. 




BAND DIRECTOR Edward Masters came to KSU from the 
University of Kansas.

A Cappella Choir Madrigal Singers 



The A Cappella Choir is one of the most active musi- 
cal groups on the Kent State campus. Each quarter many 
requests for the choir to appear in concerts in the area 
are received. 

Music critics in northeastern Ohio have commented 
favorably about the A Ca]j|)eIIa Choir. Prof. Robert 
Foulkes directs the group. 



The Madrigal singers are selected from the larger 
Kent choir. Under the direction of Prof. Robert Foulkes, 
they appear in concerts at Kent State and schools in 
northeastern Ohio. 

Madrigal is defined by ^\'ebster's dictionary as an lui- 
accompanied singing of a ])oem in a musical setting of 
five or six parts.

Communications 

Determining that the University is not lult'illing its 
obligations to the student body by providing a scholastic 
education alone, the administrative officials attempt to 
broaden the scope of education through the field of com- 
munications. 

WKSU-FM, The Daily Kent Stater and Chestnut Burr 
serve as practical aids to students studying in the fields 
of speech and joiunalism. 

The students are given the opportunity to gain pro- 
fessional experience while attending the University. Per- 
sons in other fields may also work on the publications 
and at the radio station. 

Each year additions and impro\ements are made to 
the systems so that the operations keep pace with similar 
ones in the business world. 

Funds to insiu'e the fimctioning of the radio station, 
the Burr and the Stater are supplied by the student activ- 
ity fees. 

Commtmication is a vital part of everyday life, and 
Kent State is no exception.

Voice Of Campus 



Serving as "The Community Voice ot Kent State Uni- 
versity" is tlie campus radio station, WKSU-FM. Oper- 
ating since 1950, the station is piped into the campus 
dormitories by a special wiring system. 

Not limiting itselt to serving University students, the 
station considers the largest part of its audiences to be 
citizens ot Kent and the surrounding area. 

Perhaps the highlighting featme of the station is 
the "KSU Quiz" which pits panel members representing 
various campus groups against each otlier in competition 
lor an annual trophy. 

More than 20 years ago Prof. G. Harry Wright ini- 
tiated some radio courses into the University's speech 
curriculum. Five years later in cooperation with com- 
mercial radio stations in the area, a radio "workshop" 
began. 

Today the station is still imder the direction of the 
school of speech. Students enrolled in radio-speech 
courses receive radio personnel training for their future 
careers. 

The station is a member of the National Association 
of Education Broadcasters and is licensed by the Federal 
Communication Commission.

KSU Daily Gets High National Rating 



Complete campus coverage is the aim of the Daily 
Kent Stater. By reading its four pages on Tuesday 
through Friday, the University faculty and students are 
informed about KSU activities. With the motto, "Noth- 
ing Short Of Right Is Right," the staff gathers the news. 

Guiding Stater policy during spring quarter, 1957 
were Editor Phil Miracle and Managing Editor June 
Thomas. In the fall, Don Kirkman served as editor 
while Jay Moody was managing editor. Editor Jay 
Moody directed the Stater in the winter with Managing 
Editor Jack Major. 

During fall quarter, the Associated Collegiate Press 
announced that the Stater had been rated one of the top 
18 collegiate newspapers in the United States. The paper 
had 40 points above the minimum number for a first- 
class rating. Twenty-six other colleges were entered in 
the same category of competition. 

Though the Stater is not limited to jomnalism 
majors, the publication serves as a laboratory for the 
School of Journalism. 

A Stater class offering one hour of credit was begun 
this year. The class involves one class period and six 
hoius of work dining the week. 




PHIL MIRACLE and June Thomas were editor and managinc 
editor spring quarter, 1 957.

1 958 Burr Staff 



Deadlines, problems and fun combined in the pro- 
duction of the 1958 Chestnut Burr. 

Within the green walls of the "dungeon"— as the 
office was called— the stall worked frantically to meet 
the ever-pressing deadlines. 

The one-bmner hotplate was kept busy making cof- 
fee and tea lor the ones who continuetl working after 
the Hub was closed for the night. 

Some mornings members of the editorial staff crept 
out of the dormitory at 6 a.m. to get to the Burr office. 
Dedicated souls? No, just Burr staff members. 

This is the staff and this is the book that was pro- 
duced for 1958.

Men Behind Scenes Keep Burr Going 



Giving their time, assistance and advice to the daily 
newspaper and the yearbook were William Fisher and 
Edward Cliney. 

This was the third year that Mr. Fisher has been the 
faculty advisor of the Stater. Mr. Cliney began his initial 
year as Chestnut Burr advisor. 

The two emphasize that they are only advisors and 
that the decisions of policy should be determined by the 
student editors and staffs. Yet, advice is willingly given 
when the staff members have a problem that is too diffi- 
cult for them to decide. 

The advisors serve as permanent members of the 
StudentTacidty Publications Policy committee. Mr. 
Fisher and Mr. Cliney provide professional guidance and 
technical advice to the staffs, thus insuring the best 
standards of journalism. 

Working with yearbook staffs was nothing new for 
Mr. Cliney. He was the student editor of the 1952 Chest- 
nut Burr. Still, he was unaware of all the problems that 
the 1958 yearbook staff :\c)uld meet. He handled the 
situation admirably. 

Mr. Cliney graduated from Kent State in 1953 and 
has his MSJ degree from Northwestern University. 
He is an instructor of journalism. This was his first year 
at Kent State. 

Mr. Fisher came to Kent in 1950. He became the 
Stater advisor in the fall of 1955. He received his AB 
degree from Franklin College and his MS} degree from 
Northwestern. He is an associate professor. 




ADVISORS William Fisher and Edward Cliney serve on the 
Publications Policy Committee.

Religion At KSU 



Kent State University has a full-fledged religious pro- 
gram which embraces many faiths. Giving the students 
an opportunity to grow religiotisly are two Lutheran 
groups, three Methodist organizations, Hillel for mem- 
bers of the Jewish faith, Eastern Orthodox Fellowship, 
the Newman Club for Roman Catholics and the United 
Christian Fellowship which includes members of the 
Baptist, Disciples of Christ, Congregational, Episcopal. 
Universalist, Presbyterian, Evangelical and Reformed 
and Evangelical United Brethren faiths. 

A highlight of the religious year at Kent State is the 
Conference on Religion, formerly known as Religious 
Emphasis Week. Speakers from throughout the United 
States come to the campus each January to discuss such 
topics as marriage and family problems. 

Students face many problems in attaining their goals. 
The religious organizations on campus provide a source 
of strength through which students can often solve their 
problems. In this way the individuals may acquire a 
richer understanding of life.

Communion at "Moss on the Commons." 



Catholic Students 



Named alter Henry Cardinal Newman, the Newman 
Club is a national organization for Catholic students. 
The main objectives o£ the Club are to provide religious 
and social activities for its members. Religion classes 
are offered every week. 

Mass is said daily in the Union, and the Rosary is 
recited on the campus in the afternoon. Weekend activi- 
ties include fireside chats at Fred Fuller park, informal 
dances, two all-University formals, coffee hours and pic- 
nics. In the spring, the Club sponsors field masses for 
Catholic sttidents. Through these varied activities, the 
Club offers something for all the Catholic students at- 
tending Kent State University. 

In addition to this heavy schedule, the Club also 
sponsors a monthly Communion breakfast at St. Patrick's 
Church and pilgrimages to local shrines. 

The Newmanite is the Club's official publication. It 
is a newspaper written and ptiblished by the members. 

Father John Daum is the full-time advisor to the 
Club, which maintains a Newman House at 312 North 
DePeyster Street. The Newman Center is always open to 
the students. The coffee hours are held there.

UCF Attracts Many 



The purpose ol the United Christian Fellowship is to 
keep the Christian gospel an alive alternative for stu- 
dents, to provide Christian fellowship and to provide 
counseling and worship for members. 

Represented in UCF are members of eight Protestant 
denominations. These are Baptist, Congregational, Dis- 
ciples of Christ, Episcopal, Evangelical and Reformed, 
Evangelical United Brethren, Presbyterian and Univer- 
salist. But any student, regardless of denomination, may 
join the fellowship. 

Weekend retreats are held in the fall and spring by 
the group. Projects and services form an important part 
of UCF's activities. To bolster a foreign student aid 
fund, the Fellowship sells sandwiches and ice cream in 
the dormitories and in .some sorority and fraternity 
houses. 

The United Christian Fellowship acquired a new 
house and a new director in the fall. The Rev. R. Dean 
Short, former pastor of the Fidelity Baptist Church in 
Cleveland, serves as director. He replaced the Rev. Wil- 
liam K. Laurie who went to Missouri. UCF's new house 
is located at 112 'Wilson Ave.

Gamma Delta membership is available to anyone who 
is attending the University. It is governed by the Luther- 
an students of the Missouri Synodical Conference. 
Founded in 1928, Gamma Delta was designated exclu- 
sively for the college students. 

The Kent State Chapter of Gamma Delta is divided 
into two classes— active and associate. Composed of new 
members, the associate group has the same privileges as 
the active members with the exception of holding elec- 
tive offices. Each associate is required to complete a 
service project as a part of his initiation. The project 
represents a portion of the 51 points needed to become 
an active member. 

Activation of the associate class is one of the high- 
lights of the year for Gamma Delta. The active group 
forms the nucleus around which the organization's activi- 
ties fiuiction. 

The combined groups are a conscientious and devoted 
association of students. 

Meetings are held every Wednesday night in the 
Gamma Delta room of the parsonage of Faith Lutheran 
Church. The Rev. Rudolph Rehmer is director.

Rev. O. Franklin Johnson is director of LSA. 



The Uni\ersity Religious Ojuncil serves as a coordin- 
ating imit of all religious organizations. Each campus 
religious group is represented in URC. 

The Coimcil changed Religious Emphasis Week to

Eastern Orthodox 



The Eastern Orthodox Fellowship was organized four 
years ago to unite members of the Orthodox faith in wor- 
ship, cultural activities and social events. 

The Fellowship meets twice a month to study prac- 
tices and catechisms of the Eastern Orthodox Church. 
Meetings include lectures and discussions. 

Since no Orthodox Church is located in Kent, trans- 
portation is provided every Sunday to Orthodox Church- 
es in Akron. 

A Divine Liturgy is performed on campus at least 
once a quarter. The students participate in the service, 
and they partake of Holy Cominunion. A choir, formed 
this year, sings at services. 

The cultural aspect of the organization features well- 
known speakers from the University and from other parts 
of the nation. Social events include wiener roasts, coke 
socials and picnics. 

The Rev. Leon Pachis of Canton became the religious 
advisor of the group this year. 

Faculty advisors are Mrs. Bess Koval, Michael Dubetz 
and Dr. John Parks. 

Undertaken as a project this year was a visit to the 
Orthodox Old Folks' Home. The Fellowship presented 
a Christmas program at the home.

Methodist Women 



Kappa Phi, national service sorority for all Methodist 
women on campixs, was organized at the University ol 
Kansas in 1918. The Alpha Lambda chapter received 
its charter at Kent State in 1948. 

Kappa Phi sponsors a party for Goodwill Industry of 
Akron each year. Goodwill is a program for handicapped 
people. A Halloween party was held Nov. I. Games were 
played and refreshments were served to the masqueraded

Hillel Coiinsellorship offers the Jewish men and women 
f)n campus an opportunity to congregate. 

Hillel's basic idea is promoting fellowship and un- 
derstanding among members of the Jewish faith and 
with members of other religious denominations. 

This organization is de\f)ted to religious, cultural 
and social fellowship. "Work, lectures, discussions and 
business meetings are a large part of their programs. 
Their cultural program consists of both speakers and 
movies pertaining to Palestine. To combine business 
^vith pleasiue, many informal get-togethers are held 
dining the school year. 

Their meetings are held every Thursday in the KSU 
Student Union. 

Hillel's religious advisor is Rabbi Theodore Stein- 
Ijerg, and campus advisors are Dr. Afartin R. Baron and 
Dr. Lawrence S. Kaplan. 

Although the group does not have a religious advisor 
residing in Kent, it is a very closely knit group in the 
religious, social, and cultural aspects.

lems, the organization is able to give its members a 
sample of modern warfare. Mock battles and drill meets

Eagle Squadron 




Eagle Scjuadron, one ol the newest military groups on 
ranipiis, was loundecl in fall, 1954, lo give students the 
opportunity to learn to fly at a low cost. 

Although the club is only three years old, seven of its 
fifteen members have licenses. One member has a com- 
mercial license with an instructor's rating and is working 
toward his instrument license. Six others have qualified 
with 40 hours of Hying time for private licenses. Several 
lormer members are flying with the armed forces. 

The main purpose of the Squadron is to attain for 
ROTC students a private pilot's license. It also aims 
to stimulate flying interest and to offer lessons at an 
economical rate. 

Besides learning to fly, the members gain valuable 
knowledge by refinishing and keeping the Squadron's 
Pijjer Cub in top shape. Members of the club do all the 
repair work allowed by Civil .\eronautics law. It is the 
hope of the Scjuadron to purchase a larger all-metal 
plane soon. 

Several members, to gain flying time, have taken trips 
to other states. From May to December, 1957, more than 
400 air hours were recorded by the fliers in Kent State's 
Eagle Squadron.

officers take field trips. The group's activities are de- 
signed to train students in air science. 

At the conclusion of the four-year training program, 
members of the Sabre Air Command may become second 
lieutenants in the Air Force. 

Whether or not a cadet has a career in the Air Force,

Applauds Scholars 



Phi Gamma Nu, women's business honorary, was or- 
ganized to encourage school spirit and participation in 
school activities, to further academic study and to pro- 
mote standards of high scholarship. 

Established at Kent State in 1951, the honorary serves 
as a social as well as professional group. The fraternity 
was founded at Northwestern University in 1924. 

A 2.7 accinnulative average is required for member- 
ship. The applicant must have completed nine hoins of 
commerce, a total of 60 hours and have a major in one 
of the business courses. The chapter on the Kent State 
campus has 1 8 members. 

As a national project. Phi Gamma Nu uses the 
proceeds from a National Magazine Agency and Birth- 
day Pennies Fund to buy portable typewriters for veter- 
ans' hospitals throughout the country. 

Two annual scholarships are presented by the na- 
tional organization. The Phi Gamma Nu Scholarship 
Key is awarded to the senior woman commerce major 
with the highest scholastic average. 

The other honor— a scholarship cup— is presented to a 
chapter rather than a person. The recipient of the cup 
is the chapter which had the highest accinnulative 
scholastic average for the preceding year.

care of the Victory Bell, the assistance to the local Boy 
Scout District groups, the sponsorship of the opening 
all-University mixer and the providing of other desired 
student facilities.

of learning. Membership is open to any male student 
in good standing who has had previous training in Boy

and universities.

obtaining membership in the American Institute of 
Architects. At present, sixteen Kent graduates are junior 
members, six are associate members and three are cor- 
porate members. The latter is one step from the top. 

The chapter is not one of a social nature. It directs 
all its activities toward the professional field and is noted 
for fellowship.

president of the National Student Chapter. He was elect- 
ed at the convention in Washington, D.C.

Greeks Aid KSU 



Greek life at Kent State university is designed to meet 
the needs ol each chapter's indivicUial members. At the 
same time the organizations, as a unit, help the Univer- 
sity to perform various campus-wide lunctions. 

Kent's sororities and fraternities phin programs that 
aid students in college adjtistment and place special 
emphasis on the development of scholarship, personality, 
leadership abilities and character growth. 

The fraternity system offers opportunities lor the 
furthering of special interests and talents, ft provides an 
atmosphere of living which affords a learning situation 
—that of learning to live with persons of different inter- 
ests, religions and personalities, fn addition, the system 
offers opportimities Ic^r the de\elopment ol interesting 
and lasting frienilships. 

The Greeks have a full social life, both as individual 
chapters and as a luiit participating in the functions of 
the University. 

The iniits, although supervised by Pan-f4ellenic and 
Inter-Fraternity Council, are entirely self-governed. 




IFC Governs 18 Fraternities At Kent 




OFFICERS, l.-r., row 1 : Benjamin McGinnis, Adv.; Sorrell Logo- 
thetis, Pres.; Art Meinhardt, Vice Pres. Row 2: Tom West-

Elect.; Bruce Armour, Treas. 



An important campus function is fulfilled by Inter- 
Fiaternity Council which serves as the governing body 
lor the 18 campus fraternities. 

The Council's membership is composed of the presi- 
dent anil one delegate from each fraternal organization. 
For 17 years, the group has aimed to promote and en- 
courage personal development of its members in the in- 
tellectual, social and cultural fields. 

Perhaps the group's most important activity is regula- 
tion of each winter quarter's closed fraternity rushing 
period. It also promotes a spirit of lively competition 
among campus fraternities by awarding trophies to the 
winners in nine major intramural sports. 

IFC promotes fraternity rushing activities through 
publication of "KSU Fraternities," and the Greeks in 
general through co-sponsorship of Greek AVeek with Pan- 
Hellenic Council, the sorority governing body. 

A noteworthy IFC effort came fall quarter when the 
group took a stand against trophy-taking raids on its 
member organizations. 

Following similar action by the National Inter-Fra- 
ternity Conference, the local IFC passed four resolutions 
reiterating the right of its member fraternities to select 
for membership only those men they desire.

OFFICERS, l.-r., row 1: Pat Jaffrin, Pres.; Pam Johnson, Sec. 
Row 2: Gerry Shull, Vice Pres.; Karlyn Vaughan, Treas. 



Controlling the inter-sorority relationships on the 
Kent campus is Pan-Hellenic Cotuicil. 

A national organization, Pan-Hellenic is composed 
ol equal representation from each of the eight sororities. 
Each Greek group elects two members plus the president 
of the sorority to serve on the Coimcil. 

As publishers of the book "It's All Greek To Me," 
(Council guides the rushing period of the sororities. Dur- 
ing the rushing period, Pan-Hellenic serves as a go- 
l^etween for the eight sororities and the rushees. It de- 
termines all the rules that apply to both the sororities 
and the rushees during this time. Council informs both 
groups of the preliminaries and rules, and it passes judg- 
ment on the breaking of these rules. 

"To maintain a high plane of fraternity life and in- 
ter-fraternity relations with the Uni\ersity" is the aim of 
the Council. 

Stri\ing to make sororit\' life an opportimity for its 
nrembers, Pan-Hellenic was purposely set up to encourage 
personal development of the affiliated women. 

Rotation of the officers' chairs assures the eight-mem- 
ber sororities that representation will be equal. 

Advisor to the Council is Miss Margaret Forsythe, 
Associate Dean of "Women.

CATCHING THE eyes of passers-by is a sign bearing the 
Greek letters of Alpha Chi Omega. 



im 



Alpha Chi Omega 



Alpha Chi Omega was founded at Depauw University, 
Oct. 15, 1885. The Gamma Lambda chapter appeared on 
Kent's campus on April 1, 1950. 

With "Together let us seek the heights" as their 
inotto, it is easily explained why the Alpha Chis have re- 
ceived many honors. 

The women captined the tirst-place scholarship award 
lor sororities at Kent and ranked among the top eight 
chapters of their national organization. The sorority won 
third place for Songfest and float contests last year on 
Campus Day. The Alpha Chis placed second in Row- 
boat Regatta, and the president of the sorority was an 
attendant to the Homecoming Queen. 

In accordance with their national philanthropy, the 
A Chi O's work with the Cerebral Palsy Foundation in 
Akron. Locally, their civic interest centers around the 
Speech and Hearing Therapy Clinic. 

Alpha Chi Omega is interested in developing both 
the strength of the members and the strength of the group 
through the sorority life. 

Committees from the active chapter form a board for 
pledges to help the new members form good study habits 
and high standards of conduct. Pledge guidance forms 
an important part of the Alpha Chi Omega personnel 
and standards program. 



ALPHA CHIS, l-r., Dottie Wells, Virginia Penfield, Frances Callan, 
Ann Rankin, Jo Evans and Judy McGlumphy use some elbow grease 



to keep "Gretchen" looking topnotch. The car, its interior filled 
with AXO's, is o familiar sight around campus.

Alpha Gamma Delta 



Esiablished as the loc al chapiei ot Pi Kappa Sigma in 
1926, the Alpha Nu, chapter ot Alpha Gamma Delta was 
given a charter by the national organization in 1947. On 
Dec. 6, 1957, the Kent State chapter celebrated its tenth 
anniversary. 

Members ol .\lpha Gam are noted ior their scholar- 
shi]3 qualities. The local chapter received the first place 
trophy lor the province at the national convention held 
in Del Goronado, Calif, last year. The women from Kent 
placed also on the national achievement honor roll. 

Believing that Alpha Gamma Delta should serve more 
than the University world, their national philanthropic 
program aids the field of cerebral palsy. At KSU the 
women annually sponsor a Christmas party for the slow 
learners from a special education class. 

An international sorority with 66 chapters in the 
United States, Canada and Hawaii, the women actively 
participate in numerous campus activities. Besides en- 
tering Homecoming and Campus Day competitions, the 
women of the "red, green and buff" sorority hold mem- 
bership in such organizations as W.R.A., Cardinal Key, 
Golden K, Theta Sigma Phi. Student Council and Ora- 
torio Guild. 

Annually the Alpha Gams sponsor the All-University 
Tea for the sorority pledge classes. 




ALPHA GAMMA Deltas sit down to enjoy an evening meal and more pleasant aspects of Greek life. Often exchange dinners are 

chat amiably with their houseboy. Sharing dinner is one of the held with fraternity houses.

Sponsor All Greek 



.Since their ioimding in 1(S72, the Alpha Phis have 
giown in membership and stature as evidenced by the 
Kent chapter ol the sorority. The Alpha Phi chapter has 
been on the KSU campus since 1948. 

The Alpha Phi philanthropic program centers around 
cardiac aid and the National Heart Fund. In addition, 
the local chapter annually sponsors a Christmas party for 
the imderpri\'ileged children of Kent. 

The Phis emphasize personality growth for the active 
members as well as the pledge classes. Results of their 
effective leadership program are shown by the numerous 
campus responsibilities assumed by the "Silver and Bor- 
deaux" sorority members. 

The chapter participated in all the campus functions 
and won two trophies by winning first for Homecoming 
decorations and second in Songfest. Their social calendar 
also includes the All-Greek dance, an annual event at 
Myers Lake. 

A motto of the group might be "brains and beauty,' 
for they boast a Campus Day Queen and a Greek ^Veek 
Co-Queen as well as attendants to other queenships. 

The chapter varies its personal and scholarship pro- 
grams by supporting intramural activities with a special 
emphasis placed on participation in volleyball, basket 
ball and swimming.

Founded In 1 893 



Founded in 1893 at Lombard College in Galesburg, 
Jll., Alpha Xi Delta established their Beta Tau chapter 
at Kent State in 1947. 

Socially speaking, the Alpha Xis annually co-sponsor 
the Pumpkin Prom with their brothers, the Delta Up- 
silons. The pledges have the Gold Digger's Dance for 
the active members. Their main social events of spring 
quarter are the Rose Formal, a dinner dance and a spa- 
ghetti dinner which is open to the public. 

For their civic projects, the women sponsored a 
Christmas party for imderprivileged children in Kent, 
and the group sang Christmas carols at the Children's 
Hospital in Akron with Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

The first-place Songfest trophy in 1957 and the third- 
place Homecoming trophy were awarded to Alpha Xi 
Delta. Ohio Lambda Queen and finalists for Military 
Ball, Chestnut Burr and Varsity K Queens are honors 
which some Alpha Xi members have recently held. 

Alpha Xi Delta participates in many campus activities 
and functions. Kent State University's head cheerleader 
and the president of Pan-Hellenic Council are among the 
girls who belong to Alpha Xi Delta. 

To help each member maintain a high scholastic aver- 
age, Alpha Xi has set up a scholarship program that will 
fit the needs of the individual. 




SETTING THE table, l.-r., Marilyn Roeper, Betty Miley and Nancy 
Baese indicated that mealtime was nearing. This is just one of 



the many tasks that the Alpha Xis "pitch in" and do together in 
fulfilling the bond of sisterhood.

X And Horseshoe 



With the motto "Hellenic Ctilttue and Christian 
Ideals, " Chi Omega was founded at the University ot 
Arkansas, April 5, 1895. Lambda Delta chapter was 
established at Kent in June, 1947. 

The civic-minded members of the sorority sponsor an 
all-University tea for students and faculty members of 
Kent, make periodic visits to the Portage County Home 
and give food and clothing to imderprix ilcged families in 
the comminiity at C^hristmas. 

One of Chi Omega's purposes, the belief in the educa- 
tion of women, is reflected by the presentation annually 
of a National Achievement Award and a local award for 
the oiUstanding senior woman in the field of sociology. 
The Chi O's emphasize scholarship. 

The founders of Chi Omega belie\e that the isorth of 
the group and the realization of its purposes is dependent 
upon the ability and resourcefulness of the individual 
member in her pledge and active life. The extent to 
which a girl develops her individual potential is im- 
portant to all the members within the group. 

The "X and Horseshoe" women participate in all 
campus-wide events. They won second place in Home- 
coming house decoration. The Chi O's have had their 
share of queens this year with Homecoming Queen, Var- 
sity K Queen and Ro^vboat Regatta attendant. 




WASHING THE big mirror that hangs over the fireplace in the 
living room of the Chi O house were, l.-r., Bev Reed and Juanita 



Kelly. This is one of the chores usually left for the members of 
the pledge class.

DG's Help Blind 



Personal gl■o^v'th and development of leadership abili- 
ty are two important goals of Delta Gamma. The chap- 
ter believes that the individual members can benefit 
from personal activity in civic service. 

The national philanthropy project of the DCs is aid 
to the blind and sight conservation. The chapter at 
Kent has helped two blind students succeed in their col- 
lege work by reading assignments to them daily. They 
also send contributions to a school for the blind in Cali- 
fornia and help locally by btiying equipment for the 
blind. 

In their pledge program, the women are encouraged 
to participate in campus activities, and the chapter re- 
ceives suggestions from the Standards Board. Pledges are 
invited to spend weekends at the chapter house in order 
to strengthen the bonds of unity. 

Socially, the Delta Gammas participate in all KSU 
activities, and this year the sorority excelled at Campus 
Day, winning first place in float decorations. Another 
first-place was won at Rowboat Regatta. The chapter 
celebrates Washington's birthday at a breakfast with 
brother fraternity Delta Tau Delta. 

Delta Gamma was founded at Lewis School in Ox- 
ford, Miss, in 1873. The Gamma Epsilon chap'ter was 
established at KSU in 1947. 




TAKING ADVANTAGE of the sunroom at the DG house for a

DZ's Assist Deaf 



The Delta Zetas serve the University and the city of 
Kent by working with the Kent State speech and hearing 
department. Testing of children's hearing in the local 
schools is an annual project in line with their national 
philanthrophy-aid to the deaf. Under this program, the 
sorority buys hearing aids for needy children. 

The chapter also shows its spirit of service by holding 
parties for the local handicapped children. 

Featured at the parties and other social functions is 
the DZ quartet. The women entertain frequently at 
campus activities, fraternity parties, Rowboat Regatta, 
the Student Council banquet and the Junior Chamber of 
Commerce banquet in Kent. 

Founded in 1902 at Miami University, the Gamma 
Kappa chapter was installed on Kent's campus in 1948. 
The Delta Zetas strive to improve the qualities of charac- 
ter, leadership and the scholarship of its members by a 
program organized by the Standards and Charm com- 
mittee. 

Various coeds who are considered outstanding in any 
of the qualities advise the committee chairmen to aid in 
the development of their programs. 

Miss Kent State and the Greek Week Co-Queen, as 
well as the president of Laurels are DZ members.

Gamma Phi Beta 



Gamma Phi Beta adds to the University's social life 
by co-sponsoring the May Day Relays with Sigma Phi 
Epsilon. The event is annually held on the Sig Ep front 
lawn. 

The chapter has succeeded in placing first in 
Penny Carnival for five years with their Hawaiian grass 
skirts and the sale of leis. In addition to these events, 
the Gamma Phis participate in all campus functions. 
They have given special attention to intramural sports 
which is evidenced by their reception of the All-Sports 
Trophy this year. 

The women of the crescent moon have been on Kent's 
campus since 1947. Their founding was at Syracuse 
University in 1874. The local chapter has a close con- 
nection with its national office. Help is given by "na- 
tional" in training of new officers, pledge program and 
finding new techniques and procedures for rushing. 

Gamma Phi Beta pays particular attention to ac- 
cpiainting their new pledges with the purposes and poli- 
cies of the organization. 

Philanthropically, the group holds a Christmas party 
for the underpriveledged children of Kent, and during 
the fall they entertained the Divers' Club. 

The group features speakers at its meetings, ivho help 
the girls in personality development. 




MARY ELLEN ROME was engrossed in a letter that appeared to the next day's assignments. The girls live at the Gamma Phi

Alpha Tau Omega 



"To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon 
eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong 
as right itself and as lasting as humanity" is Alpha Tau 
Omega's purpose. 

Founded upon these high ideals at the Virginia Mili- 
tary Institute on Sept. 11, 1865, the fraternity established 
its Ohio Zeta Zeta chapter at Kent State on Feb. 28, 1953. 
Alpha Phi Beta was the local which received the national 
charter. 

The fraternity seeks in a variety of \\ays to develop 
the personality, character, leadership abilities and schol- 
arsliip of its individual members. 

Highlight of a crowded social calendar is the frater- 
nity's A\'hite Rose Ball, an annual winter formal dance. 
A queen, selected from the sorority pledge classes, reigns 
over the evening's festivities. 

Aiuiually since 1933, the fraternity has given the 
,\TO Manhood Award to a senior man acknowledged to 
be the outstanding University graduate in the fields of 
character, scholarship and leadership. 

The chapter concluded a successful year last spring 
as its members topped the other organizations in Ro^v- 
boat Regatta. Added to the fraternity's trophy case were 
first-place awards from the rowing contest, the first soap- 
box cUil)\ and the tug-of-^var. 




STUDYING IN the library at the Alpha Tau Omega house were, 
l.-r., Ron Perry, Tony Ocepek and Chuck Connolly. Each year the 



fraternity presents the ATO Manhood Award to the outstanding 
Kent State graduate.

Newest Fraternity 



Operating luuIlt a system which stresses the role of 
the individual in group living, the CoUegiates are making 
rapid strides toward their long-range goal of becoming a 
chapter of a national fraternity. 

The group was founded at Kent late in the fall quar- 
ter of 1954 and was incorporated under the laws of Ohio 
on October 7, 1955. Membership on Inter-Fraternity 
Coinicil was granted to the group in January, 1958. 

Participating in University competitions last year as 
an independent organization, the CoUegiates acquired 
SIX fust-place trophies. Included was one for the Colle- 
giate quartet's third consecutive victory in the all-Uni- 
\ersity quartet singing contest. Other events in which the 
group finished on top included Homecoming house deco- 
rations, Campus Day Songfest and float construction, 
football and all-University bowling. 

Although the CoUegiates have many parties on 
weekends, the members regard the annual spring formal 
as the outstanding event on their social calendar. In 
addition to scheduling events for their own group, the 
members support University activities. 

A novel method of promoting an alert membership is 
cjne of the organization's unusual features. At each meet- 
ing the CoUegiates give recognition to the member who 
makes the outstanding contribution to the group. 




IT LOOKS AS if there were a serious conversation among, 1,-r., 
Chuck Cline, Mark Mageotte and Chuck Peterson. Wonder if it 



was an international discussion or an exchange of ideas on what 
should be done for a campus competitive event.

Delta Sigma Pi 



Delta Sigma Pi and the advancement o£ business ad- 
ministration on the Kent campus are synonomous. Be- 
cause it has prolessional as well as social aspects, the 
fraternity is in a position to do an unusually adequate 
job of making its members qualified to accept positions 
in the world of business. 

Preceded by Delta Kappa Psi local fraternity, the 
Beta Pi chapter of Delta Sigma Pi was installed at Kent 
on May Ki, 1942. The national organization traces its 
beginnings to New York University's School of Com-

Nov. 7, 1907. 

Each quarter tiie fraternity schedules field trips to 
various mercantile and industrial firms. Representatives 
of business organizations lecture at its professional meet- 
ings, keeping the members abreast of current problems 
and challenges of business. 

A gold scholarship key provided by Delta Sigma Pi is 
awarded by the University each year to the graduating 
man majoring in commerce and business administration 
with the highest scholastic average. 

As part of their campus service program, the Delta 
Sigs co-sponsor the Student Book Exchange with Student 
Council. The venture has proven successful and has 
resulted in considerable savings to students. 




DELTA SIGMA PI members moved into a new house on University 
Drive at the beginning of fall quarter. The fraternity is open only 



to students and faculty members of professional schools of com- 
merce and business administration.

Delta Tau Delta 



The prime goal of any fraternity is brotherhood. 
Delta Tau Delta has received national acclaim for its ef- 
forts in striving successfully for this goal. 

Foimded at Bethany College in 1859, the fraternity 
came to the Kent campus in February, 1950, when it 
established its Delta Omega chapter. Accepting the na- 
tional charter were members of Gamma Tau Delta which 
had been a local fraternity for 26 years. 

The Kent chapter upholds the precept that it is under 
an obligation to aid its members in developing them- 
selves in leadership, personality and character through 
association with others. 

Scholarship is encouraged by presenting a trophy at 
the spring formal to the member who has improved most 
academically dining the past year. Outstanding service 
to the fraternity is also honored with the presentation of 
a trophy to one of the chapter members. 

To serve the community, the chapter annually spon- 
sors an Easter Egg hunt in Fred Fidler Park for the 
children of Kent. 

Big days on the Delt calendar include Homecoming, 
Campus Day and Founder's Day. The chapter won two 
second-place trophies at the 1957 Campus Day in Song- 
fest and float competition. The Delts placed first for 
their Homecoming decorations. 




GEORGE NEWKOME and Lee Smucker studied in an atmosphere 
of "winners" as they cracked the books at the Delt house. Scholar- 



ship is one of the fraternity's goals, and a trophy is awarded to 
the brother who improves the most scholastically each year.

DU, I Love You 



Founded originally as an anti-secret fraternity in op- 
position to secret groups, Delta Upsilon later changed 
its policy to one of non-secrecy and today is the only 
non-secret fraternity in existence. 

It is one of the five oldest college fraternities in the 
United States, tracing its beginnings to a society founded 
at Williams College, Williamstown, Mass., in 1834. The 
first national fraternity to establish a chapter at Kent, 
Delta Upsilon gave a charter to Kappa Mu Kappa, the 
University's oldest local fraternity, in 1948. 

Under the principle of "Justice Our Foundation," the 
chapter members work together toward a common goal 
—that of becoming better campus citizens and better 
members of society. Highly regarded by the national 
fraternity, the Kent State chapter last year finished third 
in competition for the outstanding chapter award. 

"A Delta U in everything, and every Delta U in some- 
thing" is the fraternity's motto. Chapter members are 
encouraged to participate in campus activities. 

This year, for the third time, the chapter sponsored an 
exchange student from The Netherlands in his studies 
at the University. 

The chapter trophy case, to which seven first-place 
awards were added last year, is evidence of the members' 
teamwork and cooperation. 




THE MEMBERS of Delta Upsilon wholeheartedly supported the 
Golden Flashes basketball team at the Kent-Youngstown contest. 



Chartering a bus, the fraternity travelled to Youngstown to witness 
the game which ended In defeat for KSU.

Kappa Sigs Active 



"To increase and enjoy the intercourse ot congenial 
spirits among the brothers" is the purpose of the Kappa 
Sigma fraternity. 

With that aim constantly in mind, the fraternity 
maintains a healthy and active participation in fraternal 
life by both the active imdergraduates and the alumni. 
In the "scarlet, white and green" fraternity, brotherhood 
does not end after graduation. 

Kappa Sigma was foimded in 1869 at the University 
of Virginia. The local chapter was founded in 1951 when 
Kappa Sigma Chi received a charter. 

The men of the Epsilon Rho chapter at Kent have 
devoted a large amount of their time to campus clubs and 
activities. The vice president of Inter Fraternity Council, 
the president of United Christian Fellowship, members 
of Newman Club and Chestnut Bmr staff are all brothers 
of Kappa Sigma. 

Utilizing some of their time on the less serious side of 
college life, the Kappa Sigs sponsor a wide range of 
social activities. Among the highlights of the year are 
the winter and spring formals, the Sweetheart Formal, 
the annual all-University Frosh Hop, a Kappa Sigma Nu 
football game and dance, date parties and active partici- 
pation in University intrammal athletics. 



SENDING A welcoming light out to all those men who wear the 
scarlet, green and white is the Kappo Sigma house at 309 Univer- 



sity Drive. The members of this fraternity belong to one of the 
nation's largest.

Phi Delta Theta 



Believing that traternity life is one of tfie important 
factors in a complete college education, Phi Delta Theta 
stands ready to share with those who wish to partake of 
them the same pleasures and achievements it has given 
U) :ill of its members in the past. 

Founded in 1848 at Miami University in Oxford, Phi 
Delta Theta is the only fraternity of the famed Miami 
Triad with a chapter on the Kent campus. Phi Gamma 
Theta was the local which received a charter in 1954. 

"We enjoy life by the help and society of others" is 
I he fraternity's motto. In serving the community in 
which they live, Phi Delt members take children from the 
lJiii\'ersity School's classes for the deaf on an all-day 
oiuing. On Phi Delt Community Service Day the entire 
gioup landscaped the grounds of a nearby handicapped 
children's school. 

One of the most popular Phi-Delt-sponsored events— 
at least in the opinion of many coeds— is the annual "She- 
Delt" Week each spring. During this week the women 
who date chapter members appear on campus with 
pledge caps and go through a mock pledge period com- 
plete with pledging ceremony. 

The chapter also sponsors the Little All-Greek dance 
for the pledges of campus fraternities and sororities, and 
the tug-of-war at Rowboat Regatta. 




PHI DELTA Theta members, Jim Henry and Frank Nolfi 
spend a quiet evening at the house at 320 E. College taking ad- 



vantage of the hi-fi set. Listening to long-playing albums of top 
recorders is one of many activities at the fraternity house.

Phi Kappa Tau 



Although a third ot a century has passed since the fra- 
ternity's founcHng, Phi Kappa Tau still clings to its 
ideals, emphasizing the innate worth of each member 
and striving for a democratic organization. 

Conceived by a group of four men, Phi Kappa Tau 
was founded at Miami University on March 17, 1906. 
The Beta Mii chapter was established at Kent in 1949. 

With its social activities oriented to bring out the 
best in each member's personality, character and leader- 
ship abilities, the fraternity diligently lives up to its 
motto: "Phi Kappa Tau is a creator of men." The chap- 
ter annually awards a trophy to the member attaining 
the highest scholastic average for the year. 

Although suj^porting no specific local charity, the Phi 
Taus actively support community drives. 

The chapter's most anticipated social events are its 
annual Founder's Day banquet and its Sweetheart Dance. 
A coed is selected as the chapter's sweetheart. 

The Phi Taus are noted for their scholarship efforts. 
Last year the chapter's scholarship average rated second 
among campus fraternities and third among all Phi 
Kappa Tau chapters in the country. 

Brotherhood with other chapters is promoted 
through its annual "Clhapter Migration Day" during 
football season.

Phi Sigma Kappa 



Phi Sigma Kappa is a fraternity adhering to three 
cardinal principles— brotherhood, scholarship and char- 
acter. Phi Sig life is constructed around these three 
tenets. 

71ie brothers of the fraternity develop character to 
become more useful citizens and be respected by their 
friends and associates. 

Scholarship is stimulated by Phi Sigma Kappa 
through an appreciation of the value of learning and de- 
velopment of habits of intellectual groM'th. Scholarship 
is further kindled through the element of competition 
with other fraternities at Kent and with the 62 chapters 
throughout the United States. 

The national fraternity was founded at the Massa- 
chusetts Agricidtinal College in 1873. The local chapter 
was established in 1950. 

To satisfy their social life, the Phi Sigs hold a Snow- 
ball dance during winter quarter and a formal every 
spring quarter. There are also several social events with 
the Akron Phi Sig Chapter. Intramural athletics also 
hold an interest for the group. 

Each year the brothers participate actively in charity 
work, including a cerebral palsy fimd drive. Social func- 
tions with the Phi Sig chapter of Akron University are 
frequently held. 




CLOWNING AROUND the piano at the Phi Sig house were, l.-r., 
brothers Paul Thonen, Chuck Lotze, Bill Wucinich, Vaughn Esch 



and Tom Westring. Developing brotherhood, scholarship ond 
character are the principles underlying the fraternity.

SAE Has Variety 



In the belief that variety of talent and ability enriches 
the indivitkial personality of each member, Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon follows the policy of maintaining a well-rounded 
chapter inembership. 

The fraternity was born on the campus of the Uni- 
versity of Alabama in 1856. Sigma Delta local fraternity, 
founded by Canton extension students in 1950, was in- 
stalled as the fraternity's Ohio Lambda chapter in De- 
cember, 1954. 

The largest national college fraternity, Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon has pioneered a number of "firsts" in the 
fraternity field. It was the first to establish a national 
headquarters, and the first to promote the employment 
of a fulltime housemother. An SAE chapter in Minnesota 
was the first to push for Greek Week. 

One of the highlights of the social schedule is the 
Ohio Lambda Ball, which the chapter co-sponsors with 
two other campus fraternities. Another is the Sweetheart 
Formal held during spring quarter. 

Members of the fraternity can be found in virtually 
every field of campus endeavor. The presidency of Stu- 
dent Council has been held by chapter members for the 
past two years. 

The SAE-sponsored gladiator games at Rowboat Re- 
gatta have become a popular annual event. 










TYING FOR THIRD place with Phi Sigma Kappa in the fraternity 
division of Homecoming competition was the SAE's "Golden 



Flashes Special." Snow covered the decoration, but it did not halt 
the rivalry of the Greek and independent groups.

Sigma Nu Moves 



"To believe in the life of love, to walk in the way 
of honor and to serve in the light of truth" was the pur- 
pose of the men who founded Sigina Nu. The fraternity 
was organized at the Virginia Military Institute in Lex- 
ington, Va. in March, 1869. 

The hope of the founders was to establish through 
the warm friendships of a group of college men, the 
foundation of honor, ideals of intellectual achievement, 
character and social development so the members would 
be better men and citizens. 

The brothers co-sponsor a Christmas party for under- 
privileged Kent children and a Kappa Sigma Nu dance 
and football game. In addition to the annual White Rose 
formal, the active chapter is honored by the pledges at a 
Scummers' Hop. 

In other activities, Sigma Nu competes in Rowboat 
Regatta, intramural sports, the annual soapbox derby 
and the Greek Week chariot race. Many of the brothers 
are varsity athletes. 

Although athletics are important to the fraternity, 
scholarship is emphasized. The Kent chapter has won the 
scholarship trophy in their district of the national frater- 
nity for the past two years. At the beginning of winter 
quarter, the chapter moved into a new house on South 
Water Street. 




NEW HOME for Sigma Nu fraternity is at 1537 S. Water St. 
Although not within walking distance of the campus, the new 



Snake house is roomy and provides ample space for parking the 
brothers' cars.

Sigma Phi Epsilon 



Dedicalcd to ihc "tonsiaiii aim and objective to be 
a Irateinal organi/.alioii built on a solid foundation and 
directed to the weltare ol the membership and high 
ideals," the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon are found in 
nearly every pliase of campus life at Kent. 

Sigma Plii Epsilon recognizes scholarship as one of 
the most important aspects of college life. 

The chapter's social program is a diversified one. It 
includes numerous liouse paities, a "Queen of Hearts 
Ball" in tlie spring, the Ohio Lambda Ball and an an- 
nual fox hunt which serves as a picnic in the spring. 
Other annual events are a Clrristmas party for orphans 
of the area, a siminier camp for boys and a "Roaring 
20's Party" during fall quarter. 

The chapter house at Kent is a landmark of the city. 
The house, with its traditional red door, is one of the 
oldest and largest in Kent. It was used as part of tlie 
Undergroimd Railroad during the Civil War. 

Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded nationally in 1901 at 
Richmond College in Virginia. Since its founding, the 
group, with 148 chapters, has become the second largest 
national fraternity. 

The local chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon originated in 
1949 as Chi Alpha fraternity. On April 25, 1953, the 
local affiliated with the national organization. 




THE FRONT LAWN of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house provided the Phis ond Sig Eps. Excitement runs high when the time comes to

Alma Mater First 



The belief of Theta Chi that it owes an obligation to 
the University is shown by the fraternity's motto: "Alma 
Mater first, and Theta Chi for Alma Mater." 

Originated April 10, 1856, at Norwich University in 
Norwich, Vt., the fraternity established its Delta Tau 
chapter on the Kent campus on May 10, 1953. 

Theta Chi members feel that the true value of any 
activity in which they participate lies not always in its 
end result, but in the preparation for that end. In as- 
sisting each other in the building of a manly character, 
the members feel that they are contributing something to 
the general welfare of the University. 

The fraternity plans a full social calendar for each 
cjuarter. Although winter and spring formals are the 
highlights, the calendar also includes a myriad of date 
parties and social functions with other campus groups. 

Chapter members annually lend their support on the 
Greek. Week civic project and the Christmas Seal and 
TB drives. They boosted their own stock as well as that 
of the University last year by sponsoring a "corral" for 
some 300 Theta Chis from chapters in this part of the

Theta Kappa Phi 



The ambition of Theta Kappa Phi is the successful 
fulfillment of its three-fold purpose— promoting brother- 
hood and development among its members, enhancing 
each member's spiritual life and supporting Newman 
Club as an organization for all Catholic students. 

Its history as a national fraternity began March 22, 
1922, when Theta Kappa Phi local fraternity at LeHigh 
University imited with Kappa Theta of Penn State Col- 
lege to form the first two chapters of Theta Kappa Phi. 
The Catholic men who formed the Friars Club at Kent in 
19-18 saw their dreams become reality in December, 1949, 
when they became the Phi chapter. 

The fraternity's close relationship with Newman Club 
has proven an advantage to both organizations. One of 
tire chapter's traditions is the co-sponsorship of the Pil- 
grim's Prom by the two organizations. 

Recognition of beauty provides the basis for two 
of the chapter's social events. One is the yearly selection 
of a coed as Sweater Queen of the Sweater Hop and an- 
other is the annual Gold Cup formal when each girl 
present receives a symbol of her regal qualities. 

Represented and recognized in almost all campus 
activities, Theta Kappa Phi is particularly noted for its 
unusually complete chapter library. The Theta Kaps 
have won the Manchester Cup several times. 




EMERY KOPSCO, Ralph Marks and Pete Previte looked at one of trophy case. The fraternity has often won the Manchester Cup 

the trophies which holds a place of honor in the Theta Kap's for the outstanding chapter library.

Service Is Spirit Of Alpha Epsilon Pi 



The spirit of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity is one of 
service to the University, the community and its individ- 
ual members. 

The fraternity's motto is "In fraternalism there is 
friendship." By offering the members an environment 
of brotherly love, cooperation, helpfulness, imderstand- 
ing and by encouraging vigorous participation in Uni- 
versity and general activities, the fraternity fulfills its 
dedication adequately. 

With the lion as its national symbol, the fraternity 
was founded at New York University on Nov. 7, 1913. It 
is the first national social fraternity to trace its beginning 
to the Washington Square campus. 

Nationally, Alpha Epsilon Pi has 66 chapters and six 
colonies spread throughout the United States and Can- 
ada. Establishment of the Phi Deuteron chapter of 
Alpha Epsilon Pi in 1949 brought the Kent campus its 
third national fraternity. The chapter was formerly the 
Alpha Epsilon local fraternity. 

Many of the brothers participate in Hillel, Inter-Fra- 
ternity Council, Kent Stater, the student government and 
the service organizations. 

Its activities include an annual spring formal, a Win- 
ter W^eekend following Top Hop, a "Gay Paree party" 
and a Wild W^est party.

A Phi A Is Kent's Newest National 




W. BARTON BEATTY congratuloted John Butler as Dean 
Nygreen and Clarence McNair watched. 



"First of all, servants of all, we shall transcend all" is 
the motto of the Kent State chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, 
the sixteenth antl yoinigest national IraUrniiy on 
campus. 

The purpose of the fraternity is to provide each 
member with personality, character and scholarship de- 
velopment through the mutual helpfulness of the mem- 
bers. The fraternity also attempts to cultivate the leader- 
ship abilities of the members by guiding them into posi- 
tions on campus where the exercise of those qualities will 
be extremely important. 

Although the chapter is a newcomer lo the lanipiis, 
it has sponsored many activities and projects tliat were 
begun under its forerunner, the Sphinx Club. During 
the week before the 1957 Homecoming dance, the chapter 
held a contest called "Name the Band Leader." The 
winner was given a ticket to the dance and a record 
albimi of Duke Ellington, an Alpha Phi .Alpha brother. 
At the Homecoming dance, the chapter presented "Duke" 
with a momento to commemorate his visit. 

fn the University's activities and organi/a lions, the 
fraternity is represented in many groups. 

Alpha Phi Alpha was fotmded at Cornell University 
in 1906. The Kent chapter received its charter in Jan- 
uary from the national organization.

Achievement Is Kappa Psi's Aim 



"Achievement" is tlie motto of Kappa Alphi Psi and 
many achievements have been made by tiie fraternity in 
just over two years at Kent. 

A house on the University's proposed fraternity row, 
facilitating social and intellectual functions and correct 
guidance for youth and scholarship are some of the many 
objectives of Kappa Alpha Psi. 

The national fraternity was founded at Indiana Uni- 
versity in 1910. The move towards establishment of a 
Kent chapter began with the formation of the local Scrol- 
lers Club. The group's switch to local fraternity status in 
1953 was followed by Inter-Fraternity Coimcil recogni- 
tion. In Deceinber, 1955, the organization was chartered 
as a chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi. 

The fraternity's members are noted for taking an 
active part in campus affairs. Several members of the 
varsity football team are included in its ranks. Kappas 
also serve as representatives on Student Council. Men's 
Student Association, Inter-Fraternity Council and many 
other groups. 

Highlighting the fraternity's yearly agenda is the 
annual "Guide Right" program designed to give young 
people a view into the future. 

Activities during the year include a Halloween party 
to welcome newcomers to the campus in the fall.

Life In Dormitories 




y\s :i inanularturer protects the niiiuite parts of his 
jjrcnhu I until the time wheir the parts aie assemljled into 
tile iinisheil piodiict, the University cares for its stiulents 
until iheir education is complete. The housing which is 
necessary for Kent State students, as ihey continue to 
learn is provided by seven dormitories. 

Two dormitories for men anil li\e for women finiiish 
on-campus housing for more than ISOO students. 

In many instances, the dormitories offer siiidenis their 
first opporiiniil\' to work and li\e harmoniously with 
persons having conflicting personalities, characteristics 
and religious ideas. Dorms gi\e the incoming freshman 
a chance to make new friends. 

\\'orking together on a Hometonn'ng decoration 
lea\es little time for petty grievances. Instead, cooper- 
ation is important in order to ha\e a winner. 

Ciorridor parties, individual bull-sessions, sock hops, 
formals, exchange dinners, pajama parties and working 
on Campus Day and Homecoming attivities are txpical 
dormitory functions. 

Life in a dormitory is an experience that may add 
greatly to the learning process of the students. 






MISS GLEASON checked rooms as Aliki Collins, Coro- 
Icc Maglosky, Jeon and Cecile Crittenden watched. 



Shaped Like An X 

Terrace Hall, KSU's largest women's dormitory, is 
situated at the top of a hill overlooking Terrace Drive. 
This enormous "X" shaped structure is contemporary 
in design. 

When Terrace opened in 1954, it operated as two 
separate dormitories. North and South Terrace. In the 
fall of 1956, it was united under Jacqueline Olsen. 

Seven hundred and twenty girls live in Terrace. Most 
of the rooms are for three, but a few singles are provided. 
There are also guest rooms and suites of rooms for the 
resident coiniselors. Miss Olsen, Miss Afargaret Graff, 
Miss Eleanor Royola and the assistant residence coun- 
selor. Miss Virginia Gleason. 

Miss Royola and Miss Gleason are new members of 
this year's staff. Miss Royola is from Manila in the 
Phillipines, and Miss Gleason is a graduate of KSU. 

Women students may entertain their dates in the 
main lounge which is painted a deep shade of green. 
Brown accessories and furnitine complete these modern 
smroundings which are highlighted by two fireplaces, 
])roducing a cozy atinosphere for entertaining dates, 
parents and friends. 

Two recreational rooms are available for the use of 
Terrace residents and their friends. Each "rec" room 
is equipped with a television set, a ping pong table, a 
|)iano, tables and couches.

Trophy Winners 



The south wing of the dormitory contains the facili- 
ties lor two cHning halls, a bakery and the lood ware- 
hotise. Engleman coeds dine at Terrace each day and 
Verderites eat in the cafeterias on weekends. 

Social events for dormitory residents included pajama 
parties, record dances and the First President's Prom, 
the dorm formal, which was held in February. Seasonal 
festivities found the women celebrating Halloween, 
Christmas and St. Valentine's Day. The social committee 
planned also several "dress-up" dinners which were held 
during the year. 

New trophy cases were built to hold the prizes that 
Terrace women won during the year. They copped the 
All-Sports Trophy in the spring of 1957. They then were 
awarded the first-place cup rowing in the Rowboat Re- 
gatta and the trophy for volleyball champs dining fall 
quarter. 

Sports are not the only activities in which coeds ex- 
cel. In Campus day competition, they won first-place 
trophies in the float division with "The Little King," and 
in Songfest with "The Halls Of Ivy." 

For the Homecoming competition, the women of 
Terrace built their house decoration around the theme 
of "Block That Flock."

140 In Lowry Hall 



Being the smallest dormitory on campus seems to be 
no handicap in winning first-place trophies. The 140 
girls who live in Lowry Hall proved this by earn- 
ing many trophies in the independent women's division. 

The first trophy was for their 1957 Pork Barrel skit, 
"Elsie the Glowworm" which was a parody on the song 
"Glowworm." 

Their Homecoming display, "I'm In-salted," was the 
ligiire of a Falcon with salt being poured on his tail. 
This display copped a first-place trophy for the women 
of Lowry. 

Besides being the smallest dormitory, Lowry is also 
the oldest. The rooms, primarily doubles, acquire a cozy 
atmosphere when each girl adds personal touches. Each 
room is equipped with a washstand. 

Lowry offers one advantage no other dorm can offer. 
Since it is the closest dorm to the classrooms, the coeds 
who live there save time and steps. 

In the cozy recreation room, the girls and their friends 
can watch television, play ping pong or just relax. The 
study room is a former cafeteria, transformed for the 
convenience of the residents. This room is used for 
dancing when formals are held. 

A new feature is the lounge where off-campus women 
may spend their free time. The loimge, started by A. W. 
S. this year, is located at the back of the dormitory and 
has a separate door.

Moulton Blends Ivy, Youth Into Unit 



Moulton, the second oldest dormitory, was built in 
1917. The hall was named for Edwin Moulton, former 
president of the board of trustees. 

Moulton Hall houses 174 girls and is situated at the 
bottom of Hilltop Drive. As with other dormitories, 
Moulton is self governing with officers and house council 
elected by the residents. With the help of A.W.S., the 
coimcil sets up rules and regidations. 

The decoration of the rooms in Moulton Hall is left 
to the ingenuity of the individual girls. They add 
the little touches of color, from bedspreads to bidletin 
boards, which make the rooms their own. Stuffed an- 
imals always seem to add finishing touches. 

The dormitory participates in many social activities 
such as Pork Barrel, Homecoming, Campus Day, Penny 
Carnival and May Day Relays. It also has an annual 
formal for the residents and their dates. 

Moulton Hall won second prize in the independent 
women's division for Homecoming decoration. The 
theme was "Flashes Band Together." The backboard 
was inscribed with the Alma Mater, while a string bass 
sported a moving drumstick and two players completed 
the act. 

Lending an international air to the dormitory is 
Moulton's resident counselor, Miss Loretta Visitacion 
Miguel, who comes from Hawaii.

Engleman Hall 



Although Engleman Hall has a W-shape, activities 
range from A to Z in this vine-covered structure. The 
dormitory was originally used as an upperclass dormi- 
tory, but now it hotises girls from all classes who work 
together to make Engleman a popular housing unit. 

The majority of the girls live in single rooms, but 
they can usually be found in the lounge. 

Throughout the school year, Engleman is represented 
in campus activities— Homecoming, Campus Day, Pork 
Barrel, Rowboat Regatta and May Day Relays. They 
also have date parties and an annual winter formal. 

In the annual May Day Relays, Engleman residents 
placed first. 

Engleman won third place in the Campus Day Song- 
fest with "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White." 

Their 1957 Homecoming decoration placed third in 
the independent women's division. "Fell the Falcon," 
their Homecoming theme, illustrated a Bowling Green 
falcon in a tree. An animated football player, represent- 
ing the Golden Flashes, was shown chopping a tree. 

Engleman is the only building connected by a tunnel 
to the Kent State Union. Another distinctive charac- 
teristic is a patio leading from the lounge. 

Miss Ann L. Tschantz is resident counselor this year. 
Mrs. Ruth Thompson is her assistant.

Verder Houses 384 



The newest women's dormitory on the KSU campus 
is Verder Hall. Named for the first Dean of Women, 
Verder was ready for its residents in the fall of 1956. For 
several weeks the coeds lived under inconvenient condi- 
tions. They were without telephone service, light fix- 
tures, closet doors and a cafeteria. 

The spacious and modern cafeteria was not opened 
until fall quarter. Previously the students had to hike 
to Terrace Hall for meals. 

Located on Midway Drive, the dormitory houses ap- 
proximately 375 women. With the exception of a few 
singles, each room has three occupants. 

In fall, a walk and steps were constructed between 
Engleman Hall and the tennis courts to enable Verder- 
ites to reach the campus more easily. 

The women of Verder participate in Pork Barrel, 
Homecoming, Campus Day, Rowboat Regatta and other 
University functions. They have an annual Christmas 
Date Night dance and a winter formal. Verder residents 
prepare baskets for needy families in the area each 
Christmas. 

Verder Hall has three new resident and assistant resi- 
dent counselors. Mrs. Esther Kern is resident coimselor; 
Miss Mary Bamberger, assistant resident counselor and 
Miss Carol Rose, senior assistant counselor.

Men's Oldest Dorm 



The 260 men of Stopher Hall are kept busy during 
the school year as they sponsor many activities. These 
activities include an ice breaker for the freshmen, ex- 
change dinners with Moulton Hall, a barbecue for grad- 
uating seniors, and spring and winter formals. 

They also participate in many of the social and ath- 
letic activities on campus such as Songfest, Homecoming, 
Campus Day, Pork Banel and intramural sports. 

The dormitory is located near the Memorial field- 
house. Stopher was constructed in 1949, and it was the 
first men's dormitory to be built on KSU's campus. Its 
seven corridors have been glamorized with the names 
of movie stars such as "Ava" and "Betty." The interior 
of this dormitory has a spacious cafeteria which is en- 
closed with glass. Above the cafeteria is a terrace where 
dances are held. 

Four loimges provide comforts of home to its resi- 
dents. Stopherites may be found studying, watching 
television or playing ping pong in these convenient 
lounges. 

Stopher residents sponsor an annual Christmas party 
for underprivileged children. The residents also have 
other projects. 

Mr. Jay Beck was Stopher Hall's resident counselor 
this year.

The world of athletics helps to produce well- 
rounded students at Kent. With the universal 
requirement of HPE courses for all except veter- 
ans and ROTC members, students participate in 
athletics in many ways. 

Varsity athletics featining inter-University 
competition are probably the most prominent. 
Impressive buildings such as Memorial Stadimn 
and Memorial Fieldhouse contribute to the ath- 
letic program. 

For the students who do not participate active- 
ly in varsity sports, there is a varied intramural 
program. For the men, this ranges from football 
and wrestling through track and Softball. 

For women, field hockey is conducted by 
Women's Recreation Association on an inter- 
collegiate level and such sports as volleyball and 
Softball intramurally. 

C. E. Erickson was appointed in 1956 as direc- 
tor of Athletics, Health and Physical Education.

A big step towards all-around emphasis of athletics 
was taken by Kent State University last August when 
the post oi athletic director was revised to be a full-time 
job, and Carl Erickson was given the job. 

Doctor Erickson, former athletic director at Southern 
Illinois University, is a believer in a well-rounded athletic 
program. His goal is to raise Kent's prestige in the col- 
lege sports world. 

A product of Boston University, Doctor Erickson re- 
ceived his Bachelor of Science degree in education in 
1942, his Master's in 1947 and a Doctorate in 1953. 

At BU, he was a three-sport athlete, playing football 
for four years, baseball for three years in addition to one 
year of basketball. 

In 1941, he won honorable mention on the Associated 
Press All-East Team as a guard. As an outfielder on the 
baseball team, he compiled a .400 batting average and 
paced the team in home runs, RBIs and batting. He re- 
ceived offers from two major league clubs. 

After serving in the Navy for three years, he was dis- 
charged a Lieutenant (jg) in 1945. He then became the 
physical education supervisor of the Dedham, Mass. 
Jimior High Schools. 

After being director of physical education in Ports- 
mouth, N.H. and Arlington, Mass. Public Schools, Doc- 
tor Erickson was similarly employed at Southern Illinois. 
He held this position for three years. 




CARL ERICKSON is the first full-time athletic director in the 
history of KSU. 



Guidance Given To Athletic Programs 




TREVOR REES has served as head football coach at Kent State 
since 1946. 



It took a long time but it finally happened. Trevor 
Rees, head football coach, suffered his first losing season 
since coming to Kent 1 1 years ago. 

Altliough the 1957 record ended in a losing effort, 
Rees' past record speaks lor itself. When he took the 
reins of the school's football fortunes, Kent had an un- 
spectacular record of 54 wins, 85 losses, and 22 ties. Since 
then, his Golden Flashes have compiled a record of 66 
victories and only 35 losses. 

In the Mid-American Conference, Rees' teams have 
done equally as well in winning 20 and losing 13 since 
entering the conference in 1951. The only tributes Rees 
has missed are a conference championship and an im- 
beaten season. He has come close to both honors during 
the past several years. 

An excellent record at Kent is not Rees' only claim 
to fame. He played end for three years on the Ohio State 
varsity football team from 1933 to 1935. In his senior 
year, Rees was mentioned on several All-American teams. 
In 1941, he joined Paul Brown's staff at Ohio State to 
coach the freshman team. Then after a three-year stint 
in the Navy, Rees returned to Ohio State. He came to 
Kent in 1946. 

Credit for Kent's spiraling success in college football 
justly belongs to Trevor Rees.

Gridders Finish 1957 Witli 3-6 Slate 



The 1957 season found the Golden Flashes facing the 
toughest opposition in KSU history. The season opened 
against powerful Xavier and ended as the team lost to 
an underdog Western Michigan squad. 

It was a season full of hampering injuries and Asian 
flu. Coach Trevor Rees was unable to field his first 
eleven any time after the opening game. As a result, 
Trev had his first dismal season in 12 years at the helm 
of the Flashes. Without the services of all-league second 
team end, Ken Redlin, MAC sixth leading ground-gainer 
Ron Fowler and several other key players, the Reesmen 
won three of their nine games. 

Though the record was poor the spirit was good. An 
average of more than 8,000 fans turned out for all the 
home games except the finale against Louisville, where 
polar bear weather prevailed. 

Team spirit was excellent. Trailing by 27 points with 
only four minutes remaining, the game Flashes came u]3 
with two quick totichdowns to avoid a whitewashing at 
the hands of the MAC champion Miami Redskins. 

With all hope for a winning season dissolved, they 
outpointed previously imdefeated Louisville. Western 
Michigan toppled the Flashes to end the season. Loser 
of the game becaine last place holder in the MAC.

WHITE UNIFORMS of the Golden Floshes began to resemble the 
dark uniforms of the Louisville football players as the teams 



played in the slush and mud of the area's first big snowfall. Kent 
upset the Cardinals, 13-7. 



Flu, Injuries Helped KSU Opponents 



Five-ten, 164-pound, hard-driving Flash fullback Ron 
Fowler netted 254 yard.s in 62 carries averaging four 
yards per carry, placing him sixth in rushing in the 
tough Mid-American Conference. For the second year 
in a row he was chosen as the best offensive back by the 
KSU coaching staff. 

In 14 carries against Xavier, Ron gained 77 yards for 
a 5.5 average. Picking up right where he left off, against 
BW he took the opening kick-off and ran for an 84-yard 
touchdown. He dashed off 103 yards in 19 tries as Kent 
won their opening home game, 26-13. 

Ron piled up 70 yards against Ohio U before he de- 
veloped a leg injury and was removed late in the third 
([uarter as Kent won the game. 

Hampered by Asian flu and poor recovery from his 
injury in the OU game, he saw only limited action until 
the Louisville game. To climax his final season at KSU, 
Ron rolled up 68 yards as Kent downed the heavily 
favored Cardinals, 13-7. 

The 1958 season marked Ron's final football games 
for the Flashes. 



Two Flashes, senior Ken Redlin and sophomore Jerry 
King, were picked for the All-MAC team. 

The KSU freshmen played two games, losing to Bowl- 
ing Green 7-0 and Pittsburgh 44-0. The scores don't do 
justice to the squad, one of the better freshman teams to 
come out of KSU in the past several years. 

Pitt was rated as one of the best yearling teams in the 
nation and BG scored on a lucky break. The Flashlings 
^^x■le in scoring position t^vice, but bad breaks shut them 
out.

Kent Drops Opener 



In near lOO-degree heat the Golden Flashes bowed 
beiore a strong Xavier eleven. The fourth quarter 
proved lo be the downfall as the Musketeers pushed 
across two touchdowns on a pass and fumble to win. 

Kent bounced back to take the home opener 26-13

straight loss, l^on Fowler took the opening kick-off and 
ran 84 yards for a TD. 

OU became Kent's second \ictini of the 1957 season 
as Ron Fowler again sparked the team until he was 
injured in the third quarter. The Bobcats were threat- 
ening to scoie as the gun went off leaving them on the 
short end of a 14-9 tally. Fowler topped the MAC rush- 
ing department for the second week in a row. 

Dad's Day brought the Miami Redskins to Kent and 
also the first home defeat since 1955 as the Flashes fal- 
tered 27-14. Miami netted only 32 yards in the first half, 
but reversed that in the third quarter. Kent made a game

WARM-UP JACKETS were left lying on the ground following 
KSU'S football finale at Western Michigan. The game brought to 



close the poorest season of any Golden Flash team in 1 I years 
under the direction of Head Coach Trevor Rees. 



A Look Ahead Reveals Bright Future 



TREV REES, with hopes of something better to come, gazed 
into the future, thinking of next year. 




Wrapping up the 1957 football season, Mario Pisan- 
elli and Bob Button were elected as co-captains for 1958. 
Mario held down the regular left tackle spot this year 
while Bob understudied Rudy Libertini, 1957 captain, 
at the center. 

Returning next season to bolster Flashes' hopes for 
a reversal of this year's record will be Jerry King, Ted 
Zindren and Alvia Jackson. Jerry led the 1957 team in 
total number of tackles, and Ted was voted outstanding 
sophomore, .\lvia Jackson, the little halfback, was the 
big gun in the LouLsville game, scoring 12 of the 13 
points compiled by the Flashes that afternoon. 

At quarterback, Kent will find itself without a Burke 
calling signals for the first time since 1952 when Brian 
graduates. His brother, Don, was also a Flash gridder. 
The coaching staff has hopes that Dennv Galehouse, the 
number-one signal caller of the freshman team this sea- 
son, will be able to step into these wide open shoes. 

Another position that will need a replacement is 
right end, vacated by Ken Redlin, the last of the four 
year varsity football letter winners. Also playing his 
last season this year was Ron "jo Jo" Fowler who was 
the MAC'S leading groimd gainer imtil his injury \vhich 
slowed him down the rest of the season. 

Over all, the Flashes are losing 12 men via the gradu- 
ation route, but with new strength from the freshman 
team we see a bright season for KSU next fall. 



Kent Uses 'Freeze' 



Although the Flash team failed to post a winning 
record, new Coach Bill Bertka produced one of the most 
exciting teams in recent years. 

Bertka, employing ball-control tactics, led the Flashes 
to a record of 9 wins and 14 losses, almost doubling last 
year's total of 5 victories. 

The first hint of what to expect from "Bertka-ball" 
came during the Christmas vacation when Kent put on 
the deep freeze to defeat highly-rated Toledo, 25-17. As 
a result of the Toledo stall, the Flashes received national 
attention from radio and newspapers. 

On January 15, Kent fans got their first chance to see 
the stall in action as the Flashes upset Akron University, 
65-55. Nearly 5,000 watched as the KSU team ran their 
home-floor winning streak to six games. 

The game against Akron marked the 51st renewal of 
the Flashes longest basketball rivalry. 

The following week, Kent combined control ball and 
an amazing shooting percentage to pull another upset. 
This time the MAC victim was strong Bowling Green by 
a 60-51 score. 

As the season continued, the effects of the rugged 
schedule began to tell, and the Flashes lost eight of their 
last ten games. 

The season ended with the most exciting game of the 
season as the Flashes matched MAC champion, Miami, 
basket for basket before losing 50-48. 




REAL STALL BALL! KSU's style of basketball was not al- 
ways this radicol but control was emphasized. 




COME ON OUT and get It! The fomed KSU "freeze" went into 
effect against Miami when Gene Michael and Bobby Thomas threw 



the ball back and forth outside the Miami defense. The stall nearly 
worked but the Flashes were beaten in the last second.

CAN HE GO any higher? Bill Raybuck appeored to be

See New Faces 



In a season that saw the Flashes establish a KSU 
"first" with a trip in December to California, many ne^v 
faces were evident in the line-up. 

The most prominent of these was Gene Michael, 
sophomore guard who led the Flashes in scoring in his 
first season of varsity play. He also ranked high in the 
MAC in field goal percentage. 

Three transfers from Hancock Jiuiior College in Cali- 
fornia, where Bertka coached before coming to Kent, 
proved to be valuable assets to the team. 

Dale Hyatt led the team in rebounds, Bob Thomas' 
ball-stealing antics in the back comt led to many extra 
shots, and Bob Showalter added needed depth. 

Dale Reichert and Jack Moore, both sophomores, 
were valuable for spot dut\'. 

Jim Gorsline, last year's leading scorer. \\as held 
down by the new control tactics but still scored enough 
points to move into fourth place among the all-time Flash

ness to the team. Center Larry Edmunds did not see ac- 
tion until winter quarter as he was serving with the 
armed services mitil December.

Revives Interest 



It was evident Irom the start that Kent State basket- 
ball followers could expect an exciting season. The sea- 
son began with a combination basketball clinic and 
game between the varsity and freshmen. 

The entire season was to witness large crowds at the 
games and a revival of interest in KSU basketball. Stu- 
dents added some of the most vocal support heard in 
years at the Memorial Fieldhouse. 

Much of the revived interest centered on the new 
coach, Bill Bertka. Bertka was actually no newcomer to 
the Kent State campus, for he was graduated from the 
University in 1951. 

He coached at Hancock Junior College for three 
years and compiled a fantastic 84-13 record including a 
41 -game winning streak. By accomplishihg this feat, 
Bertka's team made a national junior college record. 

Bertka returned to his alma mater to coach because 
"the school has the facilities and location to attract top- 
flight talent for building an excellent team." Also, the 
attraction of coaching at a four-year school proved to 
be an impetus. 

Although his first year was spent in adjusting to the 
University, he still managed to raise the won-loss record 
beyond preseason expectations. 



JIM GORSLINE (4), Ron Birt (13), and Bob Showalter 
(12) kept their eyes on the ball during the exciting game 



with Miami. Wayne Embry lost the top scoring title in

FROSH CHARLIE BOYKIN (19) and Bill Spencer (14) dem-

Much of the credit lor reviving basketball interest at 
KSU must go to Coach Rick Forzano's freshman team. 
Led by a former all-state high school star, Charlie Boy- 
kin of Kent Roosevelt, the Kent State frosh finished their 
1 1 -game season undefeated. 

Playing basketball as if they had originated it, the 
young Flashes broke most freshman scoring records and 
set new ones that are likely to stand for some time. Boy- 
kin broke the individual scoring mark by 13 points in 
scoring a total of 267 points; teamwise, a new season high 
in total points, 903 and the highest per game average of 
any Frosh team in history, 82 per game. 

What was even more outstanding about the jimior 
Flashes' record was that it was made against some of the 
opponents' best teams in years. Pittsburgh's team had 
been unbeaten in nine games and was considered one of 
their finest first-year crews; after trailing by one point at 
half-time, the Flashes trampled Pitt, 67-55. Bliss College 
had trounced each of the M,\C freshmen teams and had 
defeated Ohio State and Indiana by sizeable scores, biu 
Kent beat them, 86-64. 

Coupled with Boykin, the Flasjies had one of the 
best play-makers in Kent history in Jim Maddox from 
Charleston, \V. Va. Oliver 'Wallace of Middletown was 
the team's second highest scorer.

Counts One Loss As Losing Season 



Don't ever ask Wrestling Coach Joe Begala il he's 
ever had a losing season! To KSU's "Mr. Wrestling," one 
loss is enough to make a season a losing one. 

Maybe that is the reason Coach Begala's teams seldom 
lose. The 1957-58 season was no different. Extending 
their two-year winning streak to 18 straight, the Flash 
grapplers proved to be the best of the Conference and 
one of the nation's finest wrestling teams. 

The highlight of the season came on March 8 when 
the Flash wrestlers won their first MAC championship. 
The season was also memorable because KSU won their 
20()th wrestling victory imder Begala's coaching. 

Contributing to the outstanding record were five 
men with unblemished records: Clarence McNair, Ken 
Koenig, Les Nader, Frank Fiore and Pat Semary. Ray 
Halliwill was imbeaten in MAC competition and suf- 
fered only one loss, that in the West Virginia match. 

The season started off successfidly when, in the first 
three matches, the Flashes shut out Western Reser\e, 
Case and Marshall. In the Ohio LI match, the team 
gained revenge by soundly trouncing the defending M,\C 
champions of last year, 31-2. 




FRANK FIORE looked as if he wos resting, but a few minutes 
later he pinned his opponent.

team was undefeated for the second year. At the end of the 



regular season the team won the Mid American Conference title, 
at the 4-1 in Cleveland. Nader suffered his first defeat of the 
season at the 4-1. Four members went to the NCAA meet in 
Wyoming but couldn't get past the semi-finals.

Kent Matmen In Trouble Only Twice 




Only twice during the season did the matmen find 
themselves in trouble. Against Baldwin ^Vallace, the 
Flashes were scored upon for the first time in the season 
and trailed 12-8 with only three matches to go. But the 
"mop-up" crew of Ken Koenig, Frank Fiore and Les 
Nader pidled the victory out of the fire. 

"West Virginia put up a fight at Morgantown before 
succiuubing to the flashes. The Moimtaineers took a 
6-0 lead when the Kent duo of Ray Halliwill and Attilio 
Russo were decisioned. Once again, however, the "mop- 
up" trio took charge and wrapped up another victory. 

In the MAC championship matches at Bowling 
Green, Begala's boys finally whipped their "jinx" and 
won their first MAC title. Finishing Avilh a total of 73 
points, the Flashes finished 22 points in front of their 
nearest competitor, Miami.

During his 29 years at Kent, Begala has turned out 
some great squads. Nine of his teams won intrastate 
titles, 13 won Lake Erie .\AU championships and three 
were state collegiate champions. He has coached an 
amazing total of 167 indi\idual champs. 

Five of Kent's squads under Begala were undefeated, 
and nine others suffered only one loss in their campaigns. 
This outstanding record has been compiled against some 
of the nation's top sports-minded universities including 
Afichigan State, Pitt, Piudue, Ohio State, Oklahoma, 
Penn State and West Virginia. 

The 29-year record of Begala stands at a fantastic 
203 wins and 34 losses giving Kent State a reputation as 
one of the top wrestling colleges in the nation and one of 
the few to win more than 200 matches in the competition 
among colleges. 

Recognition of his achievements was granted to the 
51 -year-old coach during the half-time ceremonies of the 
KSU-Miami basketball game. He was given a plaque 
which was signed by President George A. Bowman and 
the Kent State coaching staff. 




COACH JOE BEGALA has made KSU one of the top wrestling 
colleges in the nation. 




COACH MATT RESiCK has had five winning seasons during 
his eight years at KSU. 



Baseball Coach 



^\hat does it take to be a successful coach? Most agree 
that it takes a man of knowledge and ability to think 
hist antl make quick decisions. Matt Resick, beginning 
his ninth campaign as KSU s baseball coath, is a man 
with these qualifications. 

Taking over baseball duties in 1949, Resick has had 
only three losing seasons, and five games separate those 
three from being winning seasons. 

Resick was graduated from .Ashlaiul (College in 1911, 
recened his Master of Arts degree at Ohio State in 1947 
and his Doctorate from Ohio State in 1952. At Ashland, 
he ^vas a seven-letter man in sjjorts winning three in 
football, three in baseball aiul one in cross country track. 
Resick competetl twice in the National Collegiate Cross 
C^ountry Meet. 

He was third in his class, president of the senior class 
and business manager on publications. 

His first appearance at Kent State came, oddly 
enough, as a member of the Ashland baseball team. Res- 
ick played against Kent in a game in 1941 when the 
baseball diamond was located behind the heating plant 
and most of the campus was woods. Kent State has come 
a long way since that spring of 1941 and so has Matt 
Resick.

Kent State's baseball team faced two hindrances during the 1957 
season. Weather conditions proved detrimental at the beginning 
while the lack of hitting power caused trouble later. 



Weather Hindered 1957 Baseball Team 



THE COACH signaled "safe" as a Kent player was sliding 
into third base. 




Rain, snow and sleet coinbined to hinder the Flash 
baseball team from opening its 1957 campaign. Once 
the season began, it was the lack of hitting power that 
frustrated the baseballers. 

With eleven lettermen retianing from the 195(J team 
which finished fointh in the MAC, Coach Matt Resick 
had high hopes for a successful season. 

But after having their first three games cancelled be- 
cause of poor weather, the Flashes finally opened their 
season with a double-header against the MAC champs, 
Ohio U. As a forewarning of things to come, Resick's 
men lost both games because of a lack of clutch hitting, 
something that was to bother them all season. 

After losing their first three games, the Flashes man- 
aged to begin clicking and won seven of their next 13 
games. The team finished with a 7-9 overall record. 

Despite the losing record, there was one bright spot 
during the season; the pitching staff was one of the best 
in the conference with a 2.66 ERA. Dave Twaddle led 
the staff with a 3-1 record and Nobby Lewandowski 
sported the lowest ERA with a 2.35. 

But, as the Flashes were to find out, it takes more than 
pitching to win games. With only a .215 batting average, 
they were to fall below the even mark for only the third 
time imder Resick's coaching. 



235 



Catcher Howard Leads Team In Hitting 




Though weak at the plate, the Flashes did boast several 
good hitters in Walt Howard who led the team with a 
.308 average and Jack Hufnagle with a .271. Noel Slagle, 
hitting .275, was forced out of action with an injury in 
mid-season. 

On the brighter side of the diamond. Coach Dick 
Paskert's frosh team was undefeated in nine games.

Flash Tennis Team Looks Promising 



Bclore the 1957 edition ol the Flash tennis squad 
could get moving, they lost one o£ the top winners of 
the Mid-American Conference for several weeks. Shelly 
Wyman, who ran up an 8-1 record in singles the previous 
year, missed action in the middle of the schedule. 

After losing three straight to open the season, the net- 
men defeated Fenn College, and hopes for a better record 
rallied. But, the next seven matches were to bring only 
one more victory. 

F\en in defeat, however, the Flashes showed a lot of 
promise with their heavily studded junior line-up and 
could prove troublesome to their opponents in the 1958 
campaign which will begin in April. 

Coach Chesnutt's team ended the 1957 season with 
a 2-8 won-loss record.

Swimming Team 



A big problem faced Coach Bill Hoover and his 
Flash swimmers when the season began: a big lack ol 
depth. The problem was not solved and the Flashes 
suffered one of their worst swim seasons in history. 

Many of the swimmers were forced to enter three 
events apiece ... a man-killing job. Despite all the 
troubles, George Braden set a new school record in the 
200 yard butterfly when he swam it in 2:32.5 and Ben 
Holder broke the 200 yard breastroke mark when he 
tinned in 2:39.5 against Miami. Braden and Ron Riegler 
were among top MAC swimmers.

Thinclads in Race 



The well-worn adage of "wait 'till next year" was 
probably the one on the mind of Coach Jay Fischer and 
his 1957 Flash track team. Winning two meets out of 
eight, the thinclads duplicated their record of the previ- 
ous year. 

But, a few rays of light fell into the dark picture. Dick 
Mihalus tied a 17-year-old school record when he ran the 
100-yd. dash in 10 seconds. Herb Lukachek, suffering from 
bronchitis, shattered his KSU two-mile record by 24

Cross Country Squad Lacks Depth 



It was not a case of having any top runners on the 
KSU harrier squad last fall— there just were not enough 
of them to go around. 

The first few weeks of the season, Coach Jay Fischer did 
not know if lie would have enough men to field a team 
or not. By the third meet of the season, he finally had 
a squad of seven. 

Despite the poor record, 1-6, and a lifth-place finish 
in the MAC, the Flashes boasted one of the best, one-two 
punches in the conference in lettermen Jerry Martin 
and Tom Maurer. Martin finished first or second in 
every meet except for Case Tech. Maurer had one first, 
two second place finishes, three third places and finished 
fourth once. Lack of depth proved too much for the 
team to handle, however. 

In the All-Ohio Cross Country Meet, the Flashes 
finished sixth.

Promoling school spirit among the fi.OOO students

With tlie assistance ol Golden K. the dieerleadeis 
hold pep rallies before athletic activities. Introducing 
new cheers to the student body is one of the main fea- 
tures at the rallies. 



During the |)ast lew years, the cheering squad has 
(onsisted mainly ol women. However, an inno\ation 
was made in 1956 when three men joined the grouji. 

The cheerleaders perform duties ranging from cheer- 
ing to helping to care for Golden Flasher II. The squad 
arouses enthusiasm for KSU among students and pro- 
motes public relations in the area. 



Golfers At Kent 



After a poor start caused primarily Ijy l)ad weather,

the intramural sports progrom. 



Men's Intramurals 



The men's intramural program at Kent State offers 
sports of interest to the athletic-minded students through- 
out the school year. 

Intramurals provide an opportunity for hundreds of 
University men to participate in sports on one of the 
20 competing teams. 

The extensive program includes approximately 12 
sports. Some of the sports are touch football, volleyball, 
Softball, track, swimming, wrestling, table tennis and 
basketball. With such a varied program, men may be 
active in at least two activities. 

Good sportsmanship in competition is the keynote of 
the teams which participate in intramurals. The teams 
are from fraternities, independent organizations and the 
two dormitories for men. 

Directing the program is Prof. Victor Moore who has 
served KSU since 1943. He is an associate professor of 
health and physical education. 

As director, Professor Moore must arrange schedules, 
handle various tournaments and keep the crowded pro- 
gram under control. 

The intramural committee of Student Council aids 
Professor Moore in planning the organization and the 
policies for the program. 




AS TEAMMATES watched, Alpha Tau Omega's Bill O'Farrell and 
Delta Upsilon's Coe Orben struggled for the ball. The game ended 



in a victory for the ATO's. Basketball is only one of the intramural 
sports in which fraternities participate. 



244 



Women's Athletic Program Is Varied 



Kent State men are not the only ones with an in- 
tramural sports program. Under the sponsorship of the 
^V'omen's Recreational Association, sororities and wom- 
en's independent teams compete for trophies in basket- 
ball, volleyball and Softball leagues. 

Sports competition in table tennis, tennis, swimming, 
field hockey, badminton, archery, bowling and golf are 
also on the WRA program. Other organizations spon- 
sored by the group are the Shark's Club, Orchesis, 
Modern Dance Club and the Square Dance Club. 

All-Star games in the sports and such non-athletic 
activities as bridge tournaments also fall under ^^'RA 
sponsorship. 

Each spring at the \\'R.\ picnic, two rotating All 
Sports Trophies are awarded. One goes to the sorority 
and one to the independent organization which accumu- 
lates the most points in intramtnal competition. 

To become a member of WRA, a girl must participate 
in five acti^•ities— either intramiuals, open or closed clubs 
within three consecutive quarters. A minimum of three 
of these activities must be from the intramural program. 
Non-members can participate, however, in any of the 
leagues. 

Last fall, the group held the first official welcome of 
the school year at a Freshman Roimdup, the night before 
Freshman Week began. The Roundup, held in Memorial 
Gym, featiued games and sports.

Kent Slate University has grown in less than 
50 years ironi an institution in which classes 
were held in a tent to a sprawling place with 
more than a tto/cn buildings on one of the most 
beautiful campuses in the area. 

But its aims have not changed; indeed, they 
ha\ e become wider in scope. From an institution 
set up to produce teachers, it has become a sort of 
factory, producing skilled graduates to take their 
places in many fields of endeavor. 

The University is geared to even greater ex- 
pansion spearheaded by its capable administra- 
tion and faculty. This expansion is based on 
projected enrollment figines. More than 20,000 
students are expected to be enrolled at Kent in 
1970. More new dormitories, a new speech build- 
ing, a fraternity sorority row and the Rockwell 
Library expansion are all part of the picture. 

Behind this, there is a solid core of tradition.

KSU's President 



The business of Kent State University is to educate 
men and women. With this goal in mind, Pres. George A. 
Bowman has guided KSU through 14 years of expansion 
in enrollment, facilities and curricula. 

As chief executive of a growiiig state university. Pres- 
ident Bowman meets in Colimibus with Ohio officials to 
solve problems such as raising fimds for additional class- 
room buildings and dormitories. Using foresight, he has 
met the problems which he has faced as administrator 
of the University. 

The President serves as a liaison bet^veen the faculty, 
the students and the Board of Trustees. He initiated 
informal talks witli Student Council recently to improve 
University-student imderstandiirg. 

KSU's enrollment totaled 700 when President Bow- 
man was iiraugurated in 1944. Since then it has increased 
to 6,503 students, making Kent one of the three largest 
state universities in Ohio. 

In striving to improve the qualit) of teaching and to 
raise the educational standards of Kent State, President 
Bowman is always willing to listen to new ideas from the 
University faculty and staff. Under his leadership, KSU 
is expected to continue its advance. 




PRESIDENT BOWMAN has led Kent State University through 
1 4 years of progress.

Deans Davis, Nygreen Provide Advice 



One ot the tirst administrators a freshman girl meets 
when she enters Kent State University is Dean Margaret 
Davis. 

Mrs. Davis, Kent State's dean oi women, is one ol tlie 
busiest people found on the KSU campus. She is viewed 
by the coeds, not only as an administrator, but as a real 
friend. Her clear thinking and unbiased opinions have 
helped many women students. 

Dean Davis has been on the campus since 1950. In 
her eight years here, she has become known to both the 
men and women students for her cheery smile and friend- 
ly hello. Sympathy and patience seem to be the watch- 
words that Dean Davis applies in her conferences with 
the women. Combining the two traits with understand- 
ing, she gives good advice to all who enter her office. 

Although she is busy, the Dean always can find time 
to discuss a problem or answer a question for a coed. 
She is not only in charge of the entire women students 
body of Kent State, but she serves as the advisor for the 
Association of Woman Students and Laurels, the senior 
women's honorary. 

By serving the students Dean Davis has endeared her- 
self to persons who are accpiainted with her. The Dean's 
warm personality and friendliness are, indeed, a great 
asset to Kent State University. 





Serving Kent Stale students since 1954, Dean Glen T. 
Nygreen has become a well-known figure on campus. As 
the Dean of Men, he remains in constant touch with the 
student body. 

Cionferences with confused students consumes much 
of the Dean's time. Nevertheless, he acts as advisor for 
several campus organizations. Dean Nygreen advises the 
Blue Political Party, the Gold Political Party and Phi 
Eta Sigma, the freshmen men's honorary. In addition 
to his administrative position, he is also an associate pro- 
fessor in the sociology department. 

Many students have unraveled their problems A^ith 
Dean Nygreen's guidance. If the men on the Kent State 
campus want counseling or a man-to-man talk, the Dean 
is always ready to assist them. 

To face the complex duties of the Dean of Men. it is 
necessary to possess qualities of imderstanding and toler- 
ance. An imbiased opinion aids Dean Nygreen in his 
advisory capacity as a coiuiselor to both men students 
and organizations on campus. 

By providing guidance for its students, Kent State is 
fulfilling one of its obligations. The students, through 
their contact with the Dean and other administrators, 
may gain a fuller understanding of themselves and their 
associates.

University Police 



The Keiu Siale Police Force consists of sixteen men 
\\'hose duties are to protect and aid the University stu- 
dents. Diversitied assignments keep the Police on duty 
24 horns a day. 

^\'hile some might think that the main job of the 
Force is to give parking tickets, this is not true. The Uni- 
versity Police protect their community— the campus— as 
other police forces protect their cities. KSU has a more 
adequate police force than many towns of a comparable 
size. 

To the dormitory women, the Police are watchful 
guardians. At night each dormitory has a policeman 
who serves as a protector and watchdog.

The hundreds of tasks ranging from accepting appli- 
cations and scheduling classes to informing the public 
of the University's activities are handled by highly- 
trained personnel. 

From the first day tiiat a student enters the University 
until the day that he leaves as a graduate, he never loses 
contact with the administrative staff. All aspects of the 
students' activities are in some way related to the admin- 
istration. 

In matters of policy, the administrators are directh 
responsible to President Bowman. 

Kent State University is steadily increasing and much 
of the growth can be traced to the abilities and fimctions 
of the administrative staff.

Behind The Scenes 



Among the duties the administrative staff performs 
are mailing grades, giving advice and doing a milHon 
other tasks that keeps the University operating. 

The members who perform special services are im- 
portant to Kent State because they establish good public 
relations between the University, students, other schools 
and prospective students. 

The men and women in charge do their duties effi- 
ciently and work to keep their departments supplied with 
the equipment to do a superior job. Through their ef- 
forts, a student's problems may be solved swiftly. 

More students, a larger faculty and new departments 
increase the administrative duties carried on by the Uni- 
versity. As one of the three largest state universities, 
Kent State's increasing facilities and size require effici- 
ency and ability among the members of the staff who 
operate as administrators.

College Provides Liberal Background 




HEADING THE COLLEGE of Arts ond Sciences 
Rackham. 



Jean trjc 



The establishment of courses leading to the degree 
ol Bachelor ot Art and Bachelor ol Science was ]3rovided 
by an act of the General Assembly in 1929. With the 
addition of the liberal arts division, Kent State Normal 
became Kent State College. 

The liberal arts division became known as the College 
of Arts and Sciences at the opening of fall quarter, 1956. 

The new name seemed to be a more descriptive title 
ot the courses offered in the College, and it also coincided 
with the name being used for similar colleges in other 
state universities within Ohio and the Midwest. 

The College considers the BA degree to represent a 
curriculum in which breadth takes first place. The BS 
degree represents a program of specialization. 

Along with the courses universally found in liberal 
arts divisions such as language, history and science, the 
College also offers art, joimralism, home economics, 
health and physical education, music and speech. 

The College cooperates with the other two colleges of 
the University by providing coinses that constitute a large 
portion of their curricula. 

The College of Arts and Sciences provides curricida 
designed to give students a fundamental background in 
the humanities, arts and sciences with emphasis upon 
breadth rather than specialization. Students are encoin- 
aged to develop their capabilities as individuals.

DEAN STANLEY VANCE decides policy for the College of 
Business Administrotion. 



Business College 



Tlie College o£ Business Administration was organ- 
i/ed to provide proiessional training in the fields of 
business and commerce. Tlie second aim of the College 
is to give the student a background which will enable 
hinr to advance. 

The major objectives of the College have been de- 
termined by the basic principles of any professional 
cinriculum. Recognizing that a college graduate is ex- 
pected to assume a place in society as a responsible 
citizen and that he will be called upon to participate in 
social, civic and political activities, the first objective of 
the College is to provide the students with the oppor- 
tunity to secure a liberal education. 

Coiuses in English, health and physical education, 
language, mathematics, philosophy, science and social 
studies are included in the curriculum of the College. 

Because the College believes that economic activities 
constitute the major portion of the activities of any 
citizen, a well-rounded general business background is 
given to each BA student. 

The College of Business Administration is under the 
direction of Dean Stanley Vance. Dean Vance came to 
the University in 1956, and Dean Ardyn Allyn became 
the Dean Emeritus. 




FRANKLIN HALL contains most of the facilities for the College the Administration Building to the first floor of Franklin during 

of Business Administration. The Dean's office was moved from fall quarter, 1956.

Training Teachers 



Heading tlie College of Ediicaiion is Dean Robert I. 
\V'hite Jr., who came to Kent State in 1946 from the 
University of Chicago. 

The College, which is the oldest one at Kent, offers 
both a two-year cadet program and the usual four-year 
curricula. In addition to these, degrees in special fields 
such as art, business education, health, physical educa- 
tion, home economics, speech and hearing therapy, edu- 
cating the slow learner, deaf education, trade and indus- 
trial education are offered. 

Purpose of the College of Education is to train 
prospective teachers, supervisors and administrators 
through curricula giving both breadth and depth as well 
as competence in the field. Secondly, it offers a variety 
of coinses at both the graduate and imdergrauate level 
for those people who are already instructors. 

Students planning to graduate from the College of 
Education are under a program known as the Student 
Qualifications on Professional Standards. According to 
the provisions of the program, students must maintain a 
2. acciunulative average in the University, maintain a 
2. in the freshman English courses and pass either the 
English composition examination or course, the gram- 
mar usage test or course and the handwriting test. 




DEAN ROBERT I. White Jr. heads the College of Education 
which has a branch in Cleveland. 



A STUDENT TEACHER helped several students with their art pro- 
ject. Through this teaching program and other requirements, the 



College of Education is better able to prepare their students for 
careers in the field. 




259 



Graduate School 



Organized in l!);i5. (he (.liiiliiale School has increaseil 
from a few suidents lo ()95 in 1958. 

The school strives to instill within the student a 
fundamental imderstanding and a thorough mastery of 
his major field, fn addition, independent thinking and 
reasonable ability in research are emphasized. 

A recommendation from the proper department head 
and an undergraduate scholastic average of 2.5 or above 
are necessary if persons from accredited colleges and uni- 
versities wish to enter the KSU Graduate School. Appli- 
cants from unaccredited institutions are judged on an 
individual basis. 

Twenty-seven departments offer graduate study al 
KSU. Degrees include Master of Arts, Master of Busi- 
ness Administration antf Master of Education. 

The Graduate School is directed by a Coimcil which 
is headed by Pres. George A. Bowman. 

Dean Raymond M. Clark serves as the executive 
leader of the Graduate School. He came to KSU in 1926. 

By providing graduate instruction, the University is 
advancing the students' preparations for technical or pro- 
fessional pursuits. The high qualifications of applicants 
and the stringent requirements set forth insure that schol- 
arship is maintained. 




SERVING AT KENT State since 1926, Dean Raymond Clark 
heeds the Groduate School. 



GRADUATE ASSISTANT Don Leyden demonstrated one of Kent 
State's scientific facilities to students, l.-r.. Bill Monte, Carolyn 



Collins, John Huber, Wendie Longley and Jerry Livingston. Gradu- 
ate students work in 27 departments.

No Time For Classes was no longer a sUident-vvritten

ol Finian with Audrey McEntire as his daughter, Sharon. 
Production staff for the show incliuled John Morrow, 
Roy Berko and Dick Oborne.

The 1957 football season ;\'as an unhappy one at 
Kent. The season's record of 3 wuis and 6 loses included 
the 13-7 Honaecoming defeat suffered at the hands of 
Bowling Green. Kathleen "Boo " Bamberger was Home- 
coming queen, and her attendants were Nancy Lee, 
Vivian Salvador and Mary White. Duke Ellington's 
orchestra played for the dance.

year. Charlie Spivak's orchestra played, and a sopho- 
more, Sally Kaufmann, reigned as queen. Attendants 
were Maureen Dolan and Beverly Redinger. 

The Flashes broke the streak of Louisville by handing 
them a 13-7 setback. It was the second time that the 
Flashes had upset the Ciardinals.

Seniors Have Watched Many Changes 




OFFICERS, Bill Leonard, Vice Pres.; Nancy Lee, Sec; 
Bill Sutton, Treas.; Gene Robbins, Pres. 



Four years have passed since the Class of 1958 entered 
Kent State University to begin their quest for a higher 
education. 

Under the guidance of Assistant Dean of Men Ben 
McGinnis, the Class has made great strides in achieving 
the ultimate goal of graduation. 

Chosen from a field of eight candidates, Stuart Myers 
and Nancy Lee were considered the outstanciing juniors 
of the Class of 1958. Myers was chosen by the student 
body as Duke of Kent and Karlyn Vaughan was Miss 
Kent State during the Class's senior year. 

While juniors, the Class agreed to help the Class of 
1957 finance the purchasing of the carillon bells which 
were first officially played at the '57 Campus Day. During 
this same year, the Class sponsored the J-Prom at which 
the 1957 graduating seniors were the guests of the Class 
of 1958. 




CONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN a by-word at the University during 
the four years the seniors have been at Kent . , . construction of 



Terrace Hall, Verder, Johnson, the library addition, the faculty 
parking lot beside the library and the renovation of Franklin. 



292 



Junior Class Gives Bible To Library 



The size of the Class of 1959 has decreased about half 
since the members entered KSU in the fall of 1955. In 
contrast, attendance at class meetings have shown a 
growth that was not formerly apparent. 

The class meetings were based mainly on discussion 
of the purchase of the Koberger Bible for Rockwell 
Library, awards for outstanding juniors and whether or 
not Kent should have a finals week. 

The Class of 1959 presented a rare edition of the Bible 
published in 1475 by Nuremberg printer Anthony Ko- 
berger to the Rockwell Library. 

Kent State now has one of the I-l complete volimies 
of the Latin Bible. 

The gift will be displayed in the rare book room of 
the new addition of the Library which will open in the 
fall of 1958. 

Other projects of the Class have been to contribute 
financial support of the Conference on Religion and it 
gave 3500 toward the purchase of the carillon bells. 

At the annual Jimior Prom, ten outstanding junior 
men and women are presented certificates for their ser- 
vice to the Class. 

Dr. Lawrence S. Kaplan has been advisor to the Class 
for the three years of existence and will continue this role 
throughout next year. 




KATHLEEN BAMBERGER and Ed Gillies presented the Lober- 
ger Bible to John Nicholson Jr., head librarian.

Ed Gillies, Pres.; Grace Martin, Trees. As the executive body. 



these students guided the activities of the class during their third 
year at Kent State.

Sophomores Are Semicentennial Class 




THE SOPHOMORES were challenged to a basketball game by 
the fresh. It ended in a tie. 



The Class of 1960 is the Semicentennial Class of Kent 
State University. 

The Class has adopted the motto of the Semicenten- 
nial, "Dedicated to Developing Human Resources." The 
group uses the official seal that appears on the University 
stationery. It is a chestnut leaf and a chestnut burr sur- 
roiuided by the words "Kent State University Semicen- 
tennial 1910-1960." 

Serving as chairman of the student committee in 
conjunction with the Semicentennial is Bill Richards. 
William Taylor, chairman of the School of Journalism, is 
chairman of the faculty committee. The two commit- 
tees work together and will f miction through 1960. On 
the student half of the committee, eight sophomore men 
and fifteen sophomore women are on the committee. 

The Class believes that scholarship is the most im- 
portant reason for coming to college but this has not 
hampered the extra-curricular activities. 

Last year as freshmen, the class started two traditions 
that were continued by the present freshmen. The first 
Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on the front campus 
was sponsored by the Class of 1960. The same year it 
inauginated the first "Leaf Raking Day." 

The Class advisor is Roland Patzer of the Dean of 
Men's Office.

Bloomfield, Vice Pres.; Bill Lahl, Pres.; Judy Beacham, Sec. The the University.

THE TRACEY TWINS from Cleveland entertained students and 
faculty who attended the freshmen-sponsored record hop in Wills 



Gym. Emceeing at the hop was KYW disc jockey Dick Reynolds 
who gave away records during the evening. 



2500 Frosh Continue KSU Traditions 



The 2500 membeis of the Class of 1961 began college 
life with the traditional New Student Week. In five 
days the new Kent Staters filled out class schedules, at- 
tended a freshman mixer in Memorial Gymnasium, met 
the President at his home and learned the first verse of 
the Alma Mater. 

The city of Kent is noted for its many trees with the 
University greatly contributing to the picture. The 
freshmen held the second annual leaf rake in the late 
autumn, helping the maintenance crew with their all- 
campus job. The event was not only a working project 
but provided a social atmosphere among the participat- 
ing members. 

Wills Gym is the scene of many all-University mixers, 
sponsored by various organizations. Freshman Class 
President David Wright introduced the Tracey Twins of 
Cleveland at the record hop given by his class. Dick 
Reynolds, a disc jockey at KYW, hosted the mixer and 
gave away records during the evening. 

The freshman and sophomore rival classes battled out 
their differences on the basketball court. During half- 
time of a varsity game members of the two classes held 
a clowning basketball game. A tie score resulted from 
the contest. 

The freshman class takes part in those activities which 
will groom it for an active part in the functions of the 
student body for the next four years. 




OFFICERS, l.-r., row 1 : Ann Tschantz, Adv.; Dave Wright, 
Pres.; Sherrie Mackovic, Sec. Row 2: Roger Tremoine, Treas.; 
Bob Groves, Vice Pres. Under their guidance, the frosh car- 
ried on University traditions.

Our Advertisers 

Without the goods and services offered by downtown 
Kent businesses, the students of Kent State University 
would be deprived of many necessary benefits. The suc- 
cess and necessity of many of these concerns, in return, 
depend to a great extent on the niniierous purchases 
Avhich students make during the school year. Both busi- 
nessmen and students provide each other with advantages 
that neither can afford to lose. 




The Main Street of Kent must take the place of the 
business districts that several thousand students have left 
behind. Here they expect to find the same products 
sold which were available in home towns, ff the desired 
goods are in stock, Keirt businessmen can count on the 
students to buy steadily. 

Kent stores adequately supply the varied produce 
that campus dwellers need. Everything from after-date 
snacks to banking service can be found \vithin a short 
distance of the classrooms. Many Kent businesses serve 
the school and emphasize the needs of the students.

Editor Takes A Last Look Backward 




Editing the 1958 Chestnut Burr has been quite an 
experience. It all began last March when the 1957 Editor 
Dave Jones approached me between classes and asked 
it 1 would like to apply lor the position. 

At the time, 1 had been managing editor of the 
Stater. I had done a little work on the Burr and the idea 
appeared to be a challenge. 

Until the book got into actual production, I did not 
know what a thoroughly denranding challenge it was. 
On the whole, the staff was inexperienced. There were 
old hands such as Betty Gatchel, Ann Floyd, Jane Mc- 
Caffrey, Barb Benncdek and Chris Simitaculos who 
helped a lot. 

But there were man)' problems that arose and were 
unanswerable until the capable advisor, Mr. Edward 
Cliney, lent a hand. Without him, publication of the 
book would have been impossible. 

An overwhelming gesture of gratitude must go to the 
people we dealt with in the book's production— Joe 
DeOrio from Canton Engraving and Judson Rinebold 
and Phyllis Gilliland from Gray Printing. Money alone 
could not pay them in full for all the help that they have 
given to the staff. 

To sum it up, the whole book and all the details in- 
volved have illustrated the vaiue of cooperation, not just 
in producing a yearbook, but in life. 

Ed Glassner, the 1959 editor, gets my sincerest well- 
wishes. He will have problems in the production of the 
book, of course, but tlie experience he gained as chief 
photographer anil then as photo editor of the 1958 book 
will be invaluable. 

If I have gray hair al the graduation ceremony, it 
will be something else I have received from the 1958 
Burr. It truly has been a remarkable experience.
